As World Green Building Week draws to a close it is a good time for all of us to reflect on how we can influence change in our own industries.
The World Green Building Council now has 100 companies who have signed up to the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment – this means that by 2030 the operational portfolio emissions of these companies will be at net zero, affecting approximately 3.4 million tonnes of CO2 (tCO2e). These companies range from small and medium enterprises to large, multi-national corporations, and include engineering, design and consultancy services, and manufacturing. One of the recent signatories is Mott MacDonald, a global company that Devin has worked on many pool projects. The spread of industries involved shows that leadership towards net zero carbon buildings can be taken by any type of organisation across the world – including our own.
Devin is taking the lead in and working with PWTAG to produce a new technical note on Green Energy in Swimming Pools.
The practice is also working with Sport England on exploring the sustainability benefits of ceramic filters and producing new guidance.
