10:00 am - 12:00 pm
With the upfront embodied carbon of constructing new buildings accounting for most of whole life carbon of buildings, addressing these impacts is now critical if we are meet the imperative of limiting global warming below 1.5⁰C increase. This conference addresses the solutions to reducing emissions from the construction sector.

|If embodied carbon targets have been met, what will lower carbon design look like in 2030?|
Juan A. Morillas is an Architect Associate at BDP. He embraces a collaboratively and holistic approach to architecture, working alongside clients, consultants and contractors in order to achieve the best and most efficient design for each specific project. Juan founded the platform shareyourgreendesign in 2021 with the intention to motivate professionals across the globe to share their Green case studies.
Clara Bagenal George is an associate at Elementa Consulting – a deep green engineering consultancy. In 2017 she founded LETI , a voluntary group of built environment professionals, which last year published the Climate Emergency Design Guide that outlines the requirements of new buildings to ensure our climate change targets are met.
Karolina Backman is an architect and research lead with RKD. She is also part of the Irish Architects Declare steering group and chairs an Architects Declare international collaboration on a database for sustainable and healthy materials.
Tom Scott is a chartered surveyor and construction project manager whose practice was shortlisted for the inaugural RICS social impact award for their work to improve the energy efficiency of traditional buildings. Tom founded Construction Carbon in early 2020 having grown frustrated at the lack of a credible means of tackling carbon emissions from construction.
Julie Godefroy is a chartered engineer and sustainability consultant, working on independent projects and as CIBSE Technical Manager. Her work focuses on low and zero carbon strategies and health and wellbeing, from the early stages through to post-occupancy evaluation, as well as policy work.
Judit Kimpian is an architect and environmental policy expert, lead author of the book Energy|People|Buildings by RIBA Publishing. She chairs the Sustainable Architecture Group at the Architects’ Council of Europe’s (ACE) and teaches net zero architecture and policy at UCL
Sarah-Jane Pisciotti is Head of Design at Sisk. She actively integrates the approach to managing the design of projects with sustainability, digital project delivery, quality, commercial and project controls/planning functions. Sarah-Jane is an architect with 13 years construction industry experience in the UK, Ireland and Italy. She is passionate about collaborative working and creating seamless delivery from design to construction.
