Climate change is a global challenge that is becoming increasingly apparent with each passing year. With buildings contributing 40% to carbon emissions, decarbonising the sector is critical to maintaining global warming below 1.5°c.

Space Group's annual _shift conference, which draws hundreds of in-person and online attendees, will return on November 7th 2024. The conference will bring together industry leaders and "empowered agents of change" to discuss strategies for decarbonising the built environment.
