RIBA has launched workshops across the South West aimed at supporting architects achieve targets set in the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge.
Buildings make a significant contribution to global carbon emissions and architects are in a strong position to make positive changes to address this. Given the scale of the challenges, it is essential to give architects and other building professionals a clear direction on the issues but also a set of tools so that they can feel confident to take action.
Following the 2030 Climate Challenge launched in 2019, RIBA has developed progressive 10-year targets for operational energy use, embodied carbon, potable water and health and wellbeing.
To support architects, RIBA and The Green Register are offering a unique and innovative online training course in two parts. The two half day workshops will present an analysis of all four 2030 Climate Challenge targets from experts in the industry, together with workshops so that delegates can examine each topic in more depth.
To encourage RIBA Chartered Practices to sign up to the RIBA Climate Challenge, we are offering a special rate for practices signed up or who sign up to the challenge in advance of the event.
‘Meeting the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge Targets: The Ultimate Toolkit for Architects’ is now an online format over two half days in autumn 2020.
