The Race To Net Zero by 2050. Is It Actually Possible?


Be The First To Hear About The Technologies Constructing Tomorrow.

In a world teetering on the brink of environmental crisis, we go on a journey where hope meets innovation.

In today's episode, we sit down with Anil Sawhney – author of International BIM Implementation Guide and the Head of Sustainability at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

In an open chat, Anil delves into the heart of future development, talks about the importance of sustainability in the construction industry – and shows us why it is more critical than ever.

He takes us on a journey to the future, discussing the need for new regulations and standards to drive change, the skill gaps that need to be bridged, the possibility of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, and much more.

Tune in and find out:

  • What does “building green” really mean? It's not just about the planet! We need buildings that are good for people, cost less to run, and use fair practices.
  • How can we build smarter? How to integrate sustainability principles into core work processes – teach builders new ways of doing things and use tech to track how our buildings impact the earth.
  • Can technology help us make buildings that help the planet? The journey ahead to a net zero by 2050.
  • Innovation meets hope. Exciting developments in construction technology and digital tools to measure, report and reduce carbon emissions.
