We all want to be seen to be green, but as soon as there’s a cost, we change colour.

Whether we like it or not, legislation and best practice is forcing all of us to adopt a green agenda; and increasingly tenants are demanding it; and investors are already alive to the damage of failing to go green with their portfolios; - and increasingly, a non green building is attracting a downward spiral of interest from them.

This means that in order to retain clients, and secure new ones, you need to be familiar with green issues..

This event is a practical guide focusing on why and how to embrace, and profit, from the green agenda.
