Green Wash – What does it mean and what to look out for?



Green washing can be defined as the misleading act of companies, industries, governments, organisations and individuals trying to promote unjustified environmentally friendly practices, products and services through branding, mislabelling, packaging or public relations. This panel conversation with industry experts covers some of the most basic questions around the topic: What does green washing mean for the construction industry, things to watch out for, learn which questions you might want to prepare ahead of meeting a provider, and more.   The CIOB is joined by Anna Baker, Head Of Sustainability at Carey Group, Hyder Mohammad, Head of Sustainability at The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Sharon Maynard, Sustainable Ops Director for Skanska.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
