The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) is establishing the UKGBC Scotland to support and drive the sustainability of Scotland’s built environment sector.

This event will bring together a highly respected and influential group of speakers to launch UKGBC Scotland and highlight the importance of close collaboration between government, industry and the third sector in tackling the challenge of net-zero in Scotland’s built environment. The event will highlight the value of action at multiple levels, reflecting on Scotland’s sign up to the WorldGBC Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, the recently published Scottish Heat in Buildings Strategy, and the role of projects and initiatives delivered through the UKGBC’s work across cities and regions.

Speakers include:

  • Patrick Harvie MSP, Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants' Rights, Scottish Government
  • Julie Hirigoyen, Chief Executive UKGBC,
  • Stephen Good, Chief Executive, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre
