WorldGBC Global Webinar: Placemaking for a Net-Zero Future

As part of the World Green Building Council’s “Net Zero Solutions Around the World” event, held during the week of World Environment Day in June 2022, Swire Properties co-hosted a half-hour session called “Placemaking for a Net-Zero Future”. The webinar explored various aspects of decarbonisation and perspectives on a net-zero future. Our Chief Executive, Tim Blackburn, shared how Swire Properties is working to achieve net-zero goals across our businesses, and explained how our efforts to decarbonise our buildings and operations have driven pioneering projects, the adoption of cutting-edge technology, business opportunities and the creation of vibrant local communities.
