Selecting Building Materials for a Sustainable Future

In this webinar, Paul will explain how our selection of building materials has been and will remain a much more potent driver than we realise, for regeneration or collapse of our natural world and the life it sustains. He’ll cover three core materials:

Concrete,
Steel
Timber
Highlighting each of their climate and biodiversity impacts when specified and procured via business-as-usual. Design thinking and a knowledge base to support more ecologically and socially sensitive material selection will then be shared. Paul will pay particular attention to timber, the specification of which has been confused by environmental certifications and industry claims to it being intrinsically renewable and carbon sequestering.
