Hydrock Webinar: In tune with the climate agenda: What developers need to do

30 March 2021, 11.00am – 11.45am
Webinar (free)

Join us for a panel discussion – no slides, we promise – that asks, what do developers need to do to prove they can deliver a net-zero development?

We have teamed up with Hydrock to demystify some of the issues around creating climate resilient developments and to clarify the key steps to achieving net zero.

In our 45 minute webinar discussion, we will explore:

  • How a development can be climate resilient and provide net-gain
  • How developers can provide provable, evidence-based material when challenging a planning decision
  • How to work with local authorities to create a truly sustainable future masterplan
  • How to respond to top-down demands from investors to meet ESG requirements
