There are mounting incentives to transition to a low-carbon society. The Scottish Government has set an ambitious goal of reaching net zero by 2045, there is increasing pressure on financial institutions to decarbonise their portfolios, and the cost-of-living crisis is putting pressure on households to reduce their net energy consumption.
This two-day Financial Pathways to Net Zero Incubator will bring financial industry representatives together with researchers from universities and partners to discuss the question: how can we decarbonise Scotland’s housing and building stock and craft a more sustainable future?
This event is part of the Scottish Research Alliance for Energy, Homes and Livelihoods, funded by the Scottish Research Council, and is being organised in partnership with the Chartered Banker Institute.
