The crucial role of sustainability in architecture, presented by Oliver Cronk. As businesses face the challenge of enabling a sustainable, circular economy by 2030, architects are ideally placed to lead the charge on the required transition. In this webinar, Oliver will discuss the evolution of operating model contexts from exploitative to regenerative, and the importance of the circular economy model. He will also address the double-edged sword of technology, exploring both its positive and negative impacts on sustainability. Key topics include: Identifying significant areas of the tech landscape that impact sustainability, such as energy consumption, embodied carbon, e-waste, and mining.

The push for "carbon aware" solutions in the tech industry and the need for "grid aware" solutions for scalability and reduced fossil fuel usage. The implications of AI for sustainability and the need to curtail its frivolous use. Making sustainability a first-class citizen in architecture, educating stakeholders, and being conscientious in principles and strategies.

Oliver will also invite collaboration through the CAF Sustainability Topic, the Tech Carbon Standard, and contributing to the BTABoK Sustainable Architecture Content. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how you can make a positive impact on the future of architecture and sustainability.
