World Green Building Week

Date TBC

World Green Building week hosts various events about the sustainable built environment covering clean energy and energy efficiency, climate resilience, circular measures, health, water efficiency, and supporting biodiversity.

The HSE Infrastructure Decarbonisation Roadmap sets out planned actions in relation to Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions like energy retrofits, as well as other decarbonisation measures like Energy Efficient Infrastructure Design (EED) and Towards Carbon Zero Design (TCZD), training, energy teams, and metering. Contact your regional Energy Bureau Officer for more details.

Some examples and case studies can be found here:

  • Solar energy, lighting upgrades, and behavioural change initiatives at Naas Ambulance base
