Danish Architecture Center, Wednesday 11 October
The C Change Summit 2023 took place in Copenhagen on Wednesday 11 October. The event was sold out with more than 200 in attendance. Senior leaders and experts convened and contributed to workable solutions to tackle the urgent challenges that hinder the real estate industry’s progress to decarbonisation.
Our expert speakers delivered thought-provoking presentations and engaged in workshop and panel discussions covering all aspects of the wider ULI C Change programme including:
- Breaking the value deadlock: Enabling action on decarbonisation (Transition Risk Assessment Guidelines)
- City-scale solutions: Achieving a just and inclusive transition
- Shared perspective: Aligning landlord and tenant goals on decarbonisation
- Carbon pricing: What does it take to get it right?
We know many professionals across the industry are already working on these issues day-to-day and can contribute vital intelligence to capture and use as the basis for developing common and practical solutions. The 2024 Summit is being planned now and we will need you to join us once again to contribute your knowledge and experience in practical workshops, in addition to learning from conference-style sessions.

About C Change
Let’s mobilise the real estate industry to decarbonise. We’re a movement empowering everyone to work together for a sustainable future. We connect the brightest minds from across the value chain.
We challenge barriers, share expertise and champion innovation. We move swiftly to accelerate solutions that will transform our industry and protect our planet. C Change means real change.
The programme was formed in late 2021 by a group of leading real estate players that was united in its aim to support the entire industry to speed and scale up decarbonisation, providing access to practical solutions and education.
We kicked off with a major audit of all the decarbonisation initiatives underway in the built environment. This deep review enabled us to identify critical barriers that are holding back the industry’s progress. Based on this, we set our priorities and now need our members and wider industry help to tackle them.
Our work is now centred on the most pressing intervention points where industry collaboration could accelerate real change, in particular addressing the wider challenge of retrofitting. We also champion other important work in the sustainability field to avoid duplication and fragmented solution.
“Climate change is at the top of the political agenda, with governments promising to do much more to move from a fossil fuel economy to one based on renewable energies and greater efficiency. However, a significant gap exists between ambitious emission reduction targets and concrete action. Support from organisations such as ULI that is leading the transformation to a clean energy economy enables FORESIGHT Climate & Energy to produce independent journalism and help set the agenda for the next steps to be taken by decision-makers in government, business, international bodies and civil society.”
