keynote address: Lord Deben, Chairman, Committee on Climate Change



The UK Government has committed to the target of net zero by 2050. Lord Deben, Chair of the Committee on Climate Change, joins us to present our keynote to address the central role of property in fighting climate change. With new buildings making up a maximum of only 5% - 10% every year of stock, the focus on existing stock is critical, adapting what the sector already has to make a significant impact to reduce emissions. There are huge hurdles to overcome but the sector's progress will not only provide huge strides in helping meet the ambitious target but also provide businesses with the competitive edge.
