Embedding sustainability into the RIBA Plan of Work

RIBA Members get 50% off the RIBA CPD Programme, compared to non-members

This seminar will provide guidance on how to develop and manage sustainability strategies for construction projects, using the RIBA Plan of Work, from inception to operation. The approach to setting sustainability objectives, with a focus on outcomes, will be applicable to both new build and refurbishment projects. Reference will be made to the recent review of the RIBA Plan of Work to show how architects and other professionals can establish project sustainability goals, implement a sustainability strategy, review the handover process and monitor intended outcomes. Examples will be given for evaluating energy/carbon targets, climatic design, resilience, water/waste management, material sourcing and wellbeing factors.

This session will be delivered by a member of the RIBA Sustainable Futures Group that has been working on the integration of sustainability into the Plan of Work and will include case studies and an interactive session. Whole life evaluation of projects will be considered and the training will be relevant to projects and developments of various sizes.


RIBA has developed the 2030 Climate Challenge to help architects meet net zero (or better) whole life carbon for new and retrofitted buildings by 2030. It sets a series of targets for practices to adopt to reduce operational energy, embodied carbon and potable water. If all RIBA Chartered Practices meet the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge targets, they will play their part in addressing this global crisis. More information and guidance can be found here.
