Artus launches carbon control whitepaper

Leading heating and cooling experts, Artus’ ( latest whitepaper “From

carbon conundrum to carbon control – how will the building sector get to net zero?” challenges

the building sector to consider what is really impeding the move to greater carbon control.  

Amplifying the debate around whole-life carbon, design, and the industry’s ability to move forward together to find solutions, the paper includes contributions from leading sustainability experts across the UK and recognizes that many issues facing the sector have never been more urgent.  The Artus model has been founded on sustainability principles with an ambition to bring positive, realistic, disruption to the heating and cooling market as part of the overall design and operational mix in the built environment.

Demands on the building sector have never been higher:  legislation, regulation, and environmental responsibility with increased urgency over net zero are creating unprecedented pressure.   At the other end of the value chain investors and occupiers are demanding demonstrable results on whole-life carbon emissions, better environments in which to work and proven ESG credentials.  This is all against a backdrop of constrained costs, need for improved solutions, and more comprehensive and clearer carbon measurement.

“Last year was the hottest since records began, only just below the target 1.5 degree rise.  The time to act is now.  A building services design typically lasts 20 to 25 years.  We only have 26 years left till 2050,” says Roger Olsen, Chief Technical Officer and Investor of Artus.

“Everything we do right now, both new build and refurbishment, must target net zero.  LETI and many others have set the strategy.  Artus is undoubtedly part of the solution,” comments Olsen.

For the launch of the paper, Artus brought together leading voices from the built environment sector for a panel discussion.  Commentators included: Danny Hall, Head of Engineering at The Crown Estate; Chris Twinn, Principal of Twin Sustainability Innovation; Mike Edwards, Director, Arup; Marie-Louise Schembri, Head of Sustainability and Design Director, Hilson Moran; and Alia Hashem, Senior FM & Projects & Mobilisation Lead, Derwent London.  

The whitepaper ‘From carbon conundrum to carbon control – how will the building sector get to net zero?’ is available at:
