    THE FUTURE OF BULDINGS - What does it take to build a net zero building?

    The real estate market is about to undergo a real green revolution. Carbon risks and emissions are slowly beginning to be tangible factors that can be priced in real estate business models. Regulators, investors and customers expect more and more information from organisations. What the market lacks, however, is clarity on how to address those requirements in a technically and legally feasible way. Our aim in discussion will be to fill this gap... We'll also see some interesting presentations and case studies. 

    EVA STERNER, Head of Development of Logicenters at NREP will give a presentation - Leading the way towards carbon neutral developments – showing a new concept that Logicenters is working on to reduce the carbon emissions for logistic developments. The aim is to reach zero embedded carbon and zero operational carbon without any cost increase over the life cycle.

    KENT JACKSON, London Partner at Skidmore Owings and Merrill will present to us - Urban Sequoia: Building a Carbon Negative Future – a concept to transform the built environment into a network for absorbing carbon. Urban Sequoia envisions “forests” of buildings that sequester carbon and produce biomaterials to create a new carbon economy and a resilient urban environment.

    Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by JERZY WÓJCIK, CEO and Founder at JW+A. The discussion will also be joined by ANNA RUSINIAK, Director ESG - Europe at Invesco Real Estate and Piotr Sawicki, Vice Chair of the Board SAWAWA.

    Draft agenda:
    5pm - 5:30pm – Registration
    5:30pm - 7:30pm – Presentations and a panel discussion
    7:30 -9pm – Networking Mixer
