Event Details


We would like to invite you to join us at our first BPF Sustainability Conference, to be held at Travers Smith in central London.

The theme of our conference is “From net zero to nature” and will allow us to explore the range of challenges and opportunities facing the sector as we fight the combined climate and nature crises.

The event will be interactive and allow plenty of opportunity for industry networking with over 100 delegates and speakers from across the property industry.

The conference will:

  • provide an update on how the sector is decarbonising and where we are on the journey to net zero;
  • explore the impact of ESG on the market;
  • hear from young property professionals about their priorities on sustainability;
  • look forward to the coming General Election and explore what this might mean for the built environment;
  • reflect on the role of technology in driving the net zero carbon transition; and
  • examine the range of challenges facing the sector, from climate mitigation and adaptation to our role in protecting and restoring nature.
