Sustainability from an International Perspective
Chaired by Andrew Gordon, the CIOB Toronto Chair, this webinar takes a look at sustainability and circular economy in construction, with a comparison across three continents. Our first speaker, Katie Bayley, an Examiner/Building Process Specialist, will be focusing on her work in Innisfil, where she is working on a new development that is pushing the boundaries on sustainable construction within Canada. Our two other speakers, Martin Long, Director at Ashfold Management Services Ltd in the UK and Chris Allen, Interim Director at Built Environment Research Centre (BERC) - Africa, provide a comparison of how these practices translate to the UK and South Africa. There is a focus on topics such as incorporating new sustainable requirements into new developments and how circular economy will play a vital role in long term sustainability. This webinar is an interesting insight into sustainability across the globe.
