Taking the Sustainable Building and Sustainable Asset Management discussion global and building on the success of our Seminars in this series, we would like to invite you to a unique web enabled Cutting Costs and Carbon Conference event hosted by Leeds Metropolitan’s Centre for Knowledge Exchange and supported by the Carbon Control and Comfort project.

Delegates will:

  • Discover the lessons learnt on the Greenest Building in The World – the UBC Centre for Sustainable Research and learn several key lessons for carbon reduction in design.
  • Understand the relationship between Costs and Carbon and opportunities in Low Carbon Building design and operation
  • Participate in two hands-on expert roundtables of their choice on Occupant behaviour
  • Experience a lively Pecha Kucha presentation showcase covering different aspects of Carbon Reduction in Buildings (Historical Buildings, Low carbon design, case studies).

The event will be blogged and discussed live across social media to encourage perspectives from international individuals and organisations that may not be able to attend in person, to give Leeds businesses a wider business vision.

The hashtag for the event is #GVis2012
