The real estate sector and our cities are digitalising fast; from the deployment of AI, augmented reality and autonomous vehicles to big data, BIM and blockchain. How will we make sure this is done responsibly, ethically and sustainably?
Join us for an industry roundtable on a coming evolution in built environment sustainability with Simon Carter from Morphosis.
Last September Simon launched a publication called Crossing the Threshold - a primer for sustainable digitalisation in real estate and cities, published by RICS and endorsed by the PCA, GBCA, ISCA and GRESB.
Crossing the Threshold puts an ESG lens on digitalisation and calls for industry to now take leadership on this critical issue as a natural extension of its existing work with sustainability. An industry initiative to advance sustainable digitalisation called the Sustainable Digitalisation Project has now been launched in Australia, including exploring application in future versions of Green Star and GRESB.
At this roundtable, Simon will introduce the concept of sustainable digitalisation and what is emerging around it in Australia. We will then explore it in the New Zealand context and how we might begin to address it.
