Last year saw the most extreme heatwave in modern history hit western North America, a record four weather disasters costing over $20 billion each, and the hottest month on record. As 2030 draws nearer, we are in constant need to make better and greener decisions in our daily lives and be aware of the role our businesses play in keeping the planet healthy. As we say each year, sustainability isn’t just a catchphrase, it’s a necessity, and leaders in the field who are making the big changes toward a greener future are coming together once again to help us understand what innovations are on the horizon and how we can begin to make a greater difference.
The third annual IPBN Sustainability Conference took place during St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) at the CCIP in Lisbon in which we heard keynote presentations from a group of sustainability experts from various sectors followed by a tour of the Hub Criativo do Beato’s new Innovation Hub. In conjunction with our conference's official partners Enterprise Ireland, KRA Renewables and Konceptness, the IPBN was thrilled to offer both members and non-members the chance to take an in-depth look at some of the initiatives, innovations, and investments guided by last year’s COP26 event in Glasgow.
These included the transition to clean energy, the development and delivery of communication and energy networks, and perhaps most importantly, how organizations can become empowered to develop solutions that support and contribute to the UN Security Council’s goals.
We looked at the effects of sustainable practices in building and construction trends, how energy efficiency is playing a role, and how renovation and retrofitting in residential and commercial buildings can help offset the effects of climate change while tackling the ongoing housing crisis on a global scale.
