Wood Futures – Countdown to Zero

In partnership with Medite 2016

The venue: Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London

The date: November 6, 2008

Why carbon zero?

From 2016, all new homes in the UK must be zero carbon and all commercial building three years later. But what does this mean for the construction industry and it suppliers?

This year’s Wood Futures conference examines this vital topic from the timber trade perspective. Top-flight speakers from the UK and abroad will tackle the following questions and more:
• What is zero carbon?
• What products will it demand from the timber and wood products sector?
• How will zero carbon culture impact on existing buildings and the RMI market?
• What demands will be placed on suppliers’ own environmental performance?
• What does zero carbon construction mean for the supply chain’s carbon footprint?

Speaker line-up

Bob Ledsome, deputy director, climate change and sustainable development at the Department of Communities and Local Government
Wayne Hemingway, chair of Building for Life
Tim Pollard, head of sustainability, Wolseley
Ben Cook, senior land developer, Barratt Developments
Dr Paul Newman, technical director, Kingspan Off-Site
Francis Rottenburg, Carbon Trust
Rupert Scott, regulations and codes consultant, TRADA
Neil Jefferson, chief executive, the Zero Carbon Hub, and general manager of the National House-Building Council
