With the effects of climate change at the top of the news agenda and all too visible in recent weeks, there can be no doubt that environment sustainability and the need to reach net zero is a key priority. As the leading data and insight company for the UK housing sector, Housemark can demonstrate how intelligent use of data can help your organisation on its journey.
Housemark’s Housing Data and Analytics Summit on 6th October is the only dedicated data event for the social housing sector and each week, we’re putting the spotlight on some of the sessions and content throughout the day, and how you can benefit by attending. This week, we’re focusing on ‘Data for good – Powering net zero’, a session led by Sarah Daly, Associate Director of Sustainability at Turner & Townsend and Ed Houghton, Head of Research and Service Design at DG Cities.
The session will focus on the following themes:
- The role data can play in implementing a sustainable net zero strategy
- Why we need reliable sustainability data to meet targets
- How to improve the quality of your data in practice in order to reach net zero
As the government has set out the target for landlords to reach net zero carbon by 2050, it’s becoming increasingly important to consider where you are on your journey to net zero and the steps needed to achieve the government’s targets. Learn how you can harness the power of data to put into place a sustainable net zero strategy and how reliable, good quality data is a crucial component in meeting this goal.
As well as running her own marketing and business management consultancy for 20 years, Sarah Daly has been managing director of an architectural practice, Head of European Marketing for a global environmental consultancy, Director of Strategic Sustainability & Partnerships for Sustainable Homes, an independent sustainability consultant and an MBA/MSc lecturer. She is currently Associate Director in the rapidly growing Turner & Townsend Sustainability team.
