Futurebuild returns to London’s ExCel for its 17th edition between 7-9 March, providing the stage for inspiring ideas, innovative solutions and knowledge sharing to drive sustainable construction towards net zero.

This year’s Futurebuild theme is 'taking a stand for a better built environment', and Bioregional is taking a stand for One Planet Living – our vision of a world where everyone, everywhere lives happy, healthy lives within the boundaries of the planet, leaving space for nature.

The Futurebuild 2023 seminar programme has now been released and we are proud to be curating a session on the Sustainable Infrastructure programme, and chairing a talk at the Arena Conference. Both sessions are free to attend but you’ll need to book your ticket in advance - register here.

Delivering healthy, resilient, and nature-rich communities through sustainable placemaking – curated by Bioregional

Tuesday 7 March 10:30 - 11:15

Decarbonising the built environment is essential, but not sufficient by itself to create a truly sustainable built environment. This session will explore how, working in partnership with local communities, innovative developers have implemented a holistic view of sustainable placemaking by delivering infrastructure solutions that support healthy, resilient, and nature-rich communities.

Chair: Sue Riddlestone OBE, Chief Executive and Co-Founder, Bioregional

The second event we’re taking part in sees our Chief Executive and Co-Founder, Sue Riddlestone OBE, chairing a discussion on closing the performance gap between national ambition and delivery on the ground.

The Government’s own net-zero strategy - build back greener - recognises “the importance of the planning system to common challenges like combating climate change and supporting sustainable growth,” but a recent report from the Blueprint Coalition warned that “lack of government support jeopardizes meeting national and local net-zero and land restoration targets."
