Presently reduction in CO2 inhabits a condition called ‘externality’ where neither producer nor user benefits financially by reducing it; it’s not a market driven condition. All this will presumably change when carbon is taxed at source; but in which countries will this actually happen?
FOOTPRINT+ has brought together the cleverest people we can find in the UK to talk to us about how to do this. The event will be attended by companies who want to know what to do; they need to because their investors are making them do it.
This is a fascinating world where technology is moving fast, laws are changing and vast sums of money are changing hands. As John Kerry, the USA’s top climate diplomat told the CERAWeek oil conference this year “There’s a lot of money now chasing this new future”.
On the 9th June, the final afternoon of FOOTPRINT+, we are inviting in students who are embarking on or considering a career in the ever changing property industry. Providing a platform to meet people who are already making a difference. It will be a once a year opportunity to make these potentially life-changing connections, be you a fledgling architect, engineer, lawyer or financier.
All that we ask is that you turn up prepared to talk and listen. Hopefully see you there.
