Conferences

BSI Net-Zero Week 25th – 28th of April

BSI
How standards for sustainable finance can accelerate the net zero transition – 25th April

The financial sector can play a unique role in mobilizing capital to facilitate the transition to net zero, but needs greater integrity to build trust in financial products and related services. This webinar will explore the drivers of change, and how standards can help the industry adopt and demonstrate the principles of sustainable finance, so accelerating the necessary market transformation.

Decarbonizing transport: achieving a good consumer experience in the transition to electric vehicles – 26th of April

We’re going to engage with the issues and challenges that consumers face when making the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). We’ll look at what’s driving policy and the other initiatives that aim to improve the consumer experience of charging EVs on the public network, including the introduction of the upcoming PAS 1899 to support more accessible charge point design.

The role of energy standards in supporting net zero outcomes and innovation 26th of April

This session will explore the latest net zero commitments and developments impacting the energy sector, including challenges, solutions, key learnings, action points and the role of standards in enabling the sector’s net zero journey.

The role of innovation in helping the built environment achieve net zero – 27th of April

This session will update the sector on the latest developments helping the built environment achieve net zero, specifically:

  • The concrete industry’s route map to net zero and the role of new materials
  • How the revision to PAS 2080 on carbon management is incorporating new thinking
  • The latest developments on how new energy efficiency products can be included in funded whole-house retrofits and standards
Net Zero in the food sector – 27th of April

BSI’s Net Zero Week provides a multi-sectoral view of the collective challenges that must be met for the UK to reach our net zero carbon emissions target by 2050. This session looks at current challenges for the food sector around performance, and outlines some key initiatives towards achieving net zero in the food chain.

Towards Net Zero – Transition to Net Zero in the Healthcare Sector – 28th of April

The health and care system in England is responsible for an estimated 4 – 5 per cent of the country’s carbon footprint – so has a major role to play in supporting the net zero target. The NHS has therefore committed to reaching net zero as soon as possible.

As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week, this webinar will explore several areas critical to carbon reduction in healthcare. Presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion and Q&A.

The role of data and cyber-physical systems in achieving net zero – 28th of April

This webinar explores the vital role that accurate, trustworthy and shared data plays in informing sustainability-related decisions, and how connecting digital technologies with physical infrastructure (sometimes called cyber-physical systems, or cyber-physical infrastructure) can translate this into reduced CO2 emissions.

Lean Agile Exchange 27th – 28th of April 2022

The 3rd online Lean Agile Exchange returns in April 2022 bringing together practitioners from Europe, North America and beyond for 2 days of practical sessions exploring cutting-edge themes.
