Heritage regeneration, retrofit and resource efficiency in the built environment
Register here for the free online livestream version of this event. For those attending the COP26 Blue Zone in person, there is no need for registration, you are welcome to drop in and join us in person at the Buildings Pavilion, Boardroom, Hall 4.
Regeneration of our existing built environment can support net-zero targets and contribute to efficient and sustainable places whilst supporting circular economy principals and resource efficiency.
Our historic built environment is a key part of this. We already have valuable, resilient and adaptable buildings and infrastructure which have stood the test of time. Maximising their use reduces carbon emissions from demolition and new construction and provides opportunities for local skilled jobs and local supply chains, with a focus on traditional skills training and indigenous knowledge. It also connects people with culture and heritage which builds community resilience and paves the way for transformational change.
This session will demonstrate how our historic built environment can support net-zero and resilience, and showcase some of the initiatives happening across the host city of Glasgow and Scotland.
