Leadership in Pathways to Zero Carbon – Perth Design Week

Leadership in Pathways to Zero Carbon – Perth Design Week
March 27 2023
Arrival 12.00pm / event 12.30pm to 2.00pm
Free Event

With cities and construction accounting for 39% of the carbon challenge, architect and climate advocate Ross Donaldson and a panel of experts discuss what we must do.

“As practitioners within the construction industry, our part of the responsibility for 2030 therefore represents nearly 40% of the problem and we must embrace the challenge.”

“For the most part we are not even measuring how much carbon there is in the buildings we are designing. If we are not measuring, how can we accurately understand how to reduce the amount of carbon by 50% within the critical timeframe?”

“We absolutely must be now measuring the whole-of-life carbon in our buildings.” — Ross Donaldson
