Q&A with Tim White, COO, Modus

Why is it important that the UK’s property, planning, and sustainability sectors come together at FOOTPRINT+?

While the current statistics on energy consumption, pollution, and the overall carbon footprint of the real estate sector are alarming, they also create an exciting opportunity for those involved to make a genuine environmental impact. Events such as FOOTPRINT+ are vital because they facilitate inspiration and innovation – combining ideas from the leading minds in the real estate field with the latest in tech and policy – driving a movement towards viable, sustainable action within the industry.

What did you hear about / experience at last year’s event that has made you want to come back?

Last year's FOOTPRINT+ event showcased the major advancements that the real estate sector is making toward decarbonisation; highlighting the newest technologies and fostering meaningful dialogue among industry leaders. The interdisciplinary environment prompted lively collaboration, and demonstrated the collective commitment to driving sustainability in real estate, making it a compelling reason to return this year.

When you attend FOOTPRINT+ in May 2024 what will you be sharing with conference delegates, policy makers, your partners, and your industry peers?

At FOOTPRINT+ in May 2024, I will be sharing insights into effective ESG implementation within the real estate sector. My focus will be on showcasing strategies that enhance property value, attract sustainable investments, reduce risk, and align with sustainability goals, ensuring a positive impact on both environmental and financial performance.

What are you looking to get out of the FOOTPRINT+ event?

My primary goal at FOOTPRINT+ is to gain a deeper understanding of the latest advancements in technology, materials, and data analytics that contribute to ESG objectives. I look forward to engaging with like-minded professionals, exploring innovative solutions, and establishing connections that will enhance ESG practices within the real estate sector, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable and resilient built environment.
