Context
Climate change and pressing social and economic issues has meant that sustainable development is a key objective by government, business and society. This is reflected in tighter legislation and codes, changing business practice and more discerning stakeholder demands. It is therefore increasingly important that sustainability is integrated into the planning, design, construction and management of built environments.

This course introduces participants to sustainable built environments and provides them with knowledge and tools to enable them to address sustainability and integrate this into built environments.

 

Content

The course covers:

  • Climate change and sustainable development
  • The implications for the built environment
