The Beyond Net Zero Pavilion is back, bigger and with a packed showcase programme featuring some of the leading thinkers and companies from across the development sector.  UKBCSD is partnering with members Bradford Council, supported by Sir Robert McAlpine, Inspired PLC and Keyland Developments to bring a packed three-day programme in Leeds this year.

Following a successful first year, UKBCSD and Bradford Council will host the Beyond Net Zero Pavilion for a second year at the event set to take place between 16-18 May in Leeds.

For more than 22 years, UKBCSD has represented exceptional thought leaders, business trailblazers, innovators and disruptors coming together to attain a more sustainable world.

UKBCSD believe in going beyond net zero by shaping and delivering against the UN Sustainable Development Goals, guiding others and encouraging others to benchmark.

UKBCSD will use UKREiiF as a platform to deliver its message and showcase its members and practice to a group of over 6,000 investors, developers, local authorities, occupiers and more.

Jason Longhurst, chair of UKBCSD, said: “The World Business Council for Sustainable Development is a global network of more than 400 businesses with a combined annual revenue of more than $8.5 trillion.

“The council exists to put forward solutions to tackle the climate emergency, nature loss and mounting inequality.

“The UK Business Council has operated for over two decades and includes major house builders, property developers, consultants and contractors committed to decarbonisation among its members.

“Last year, we were one of the first organisations to commit to UKREiiF. We look forward to meeting and networking with more businesses and organisations at UKREiiF looking for help and expertise with their sustainable development journey.”

UKREiiF, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, added: “There is an urgent need to transform the construction and property sector – it is one of the main contributors to global emissions and therefore action needs to be taken. It’s why the net zero agenda is one of our key pillars and areas of conversation at UKREiiF – and we’re delighted to, once again, have the UK Business Council for Sustainable Development sponsor our Net Zero Pavilion. They are a shining light within the industry and are driving the change, and it’s a pleasure to have their support in getting the key messages across to the industry.”

Led by the UK’s leading property events company, Built Environment Networking, and supported by some of the most prominent UK Property and infrastructure companies, the second annual UKREiiF event will be held in Leeds on 16-18 May 2023. The forum will attract inward investment, generate economic growth and drive a more sustainable and inclusive culture within the property and construction industries.
