The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals



This CIOB event was held for Hub Members across the world to discuss how CIOB can address sustainability in construction through the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

The UN SDGs are globally shared targets to tackle issues relating to structural inequality, poverty, energy, water, climate and other key challenges for both people and the environment.

The goals were developed through a bottom-up and consultative process intended to be holistic and universal in nature. They are a commitment to which almost everyone in the world can agree, and the CIOB has the opportunity to develop strategies for the development of the built environment which  take each goal into account.

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.
