Ross Reed said, “We were delighted to sponsor this event, we have significant experience in supporting our clients on their carbon reduction  journeys, but it is always good to understand the direction of travel, and the current challenges and opportunities of other industry stakeholders. There was some lively debate around policy, funding and yields, enabling us to understand the appetite for net zero carbon buildings.”

A big thank you to Town Centre Securities for enabling us to use their Leeds office as the venue for the forum.
