World Green Building Council to speak at KHL event
By Mike Hayes16 June 2022
World Green Building Council (WGBC) director Victoria Burrows will deliver a keynote presentation at KHL’s inaugural Construction Sustainability Summit 2022, on September 13.
The virtual event, which will be held during WGBC’s World Green Building Week, aims to describe and promote construction practices that could drive down carbon emissions and reduce waste in the industry.
Victoria is director of WGBC’s pioneering Advancing Net Zero project, designed to accelerate total decarbonisation of the built environment.
In this role, she oversees and supports Green Building Councils participating in the project, as well as a number of other partnerships which provide funding and support, marketing and communications, and the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment.
With a strong background in the sustainable development industry, ranging from client-side advisory services, green building rating tool consultancy, and an on-site Head of Sustainability for a major international contractor, Victoria brings a combination of technical and strategic expertise to KHL’s sustainable construction event, jointly organised by Construction Europe and International Construction.
Victoria joins panellists announced so far from Volvo CE and Bauer, and topics will range from the materials, equipment, technology and methodology that could help construction businesses achieve the goal of net zero carbon construction.
