Urbano Network is London’s leading pan-sector independent business network with over 5,000 Member & Associate Companies, ranging from boutique practices and SMEs, to corporates and PLCs.

Urbano Build is one of our most vibrant business communities with its own programme of regular networking events in London aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities.

Businesses in the built environment and construction sectors will have to work within a net zero carbon economy by 2050 and new buildings by 2030. This event will look at the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC)'s Advancing Net Zero programme whose aim is to drive the transition to a net zero carbon built environment in the UK.

In April 2019, ‘Net Zero Carbon Buildings: A Framework Definition’ was launched at the Houses of Parliament resulting from the work of an industry-wide task group to both define what a new zero carbon building is and then develop a series of consistent approaches for the measurement and mitigation of in-use energy performance and whole-life carbon emissions.

Happily, many Urbano members were represented on the UKGBC's task group and this event will share its findings with hopefully many of our members and associates.


Our guest speakers are Richard Twinn, Senior Policy Advisor at UKGBC, who will discuss the report and its development, and Natalia Ford, Senior Sustainability Consultant at TFT Consultants (Urbano Network Members), who will look at Scope 3 emissions (everything beyond gas and electricity usage in buildings) which make up 95% of emissions.

If your business is one of those sector signatories declaring a climate and environmental emergency, please book and find out how your business can start making changes NOW for all our futures.
