Green Home Festival 2022: Using sustainable materials

This webinar will focus on circular and sustainable materials with an emphasis on homegrown materials to show the positive impact these can have on the embodied carbon profile of a building.

During the session the speakers will highlight the alternative options to commonplace insulation types and the wider retrofit and new build design considerations at specification stage.


Importantly all the panel will discuss on the challenges to reduce embodied and operational carbon and develop the new skills that will be needed to construct net zero buildings.
