Participants in the online conference will also stand a chance to win an iPhone 11 Pro.
According to Tenderd, the construction industry has a vital role to play in the climate emergency that the world finds itself in today. Building and construction are responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the world, while operational emissions – which refer to the energy used to heat, cool and light buildings – account for 28%. The remaining 11% comes from embodied carbon emissions (or ‘upfront’ carbon) associated with materials and construction processes throughout the whole building life cycle. As new construction is expected to double the world’s building stock by 2060, and each piece of heavy equipment generates carbon emissions equivalent to at least 25 cars, addressing carbon emissions generated from the industry is crucial in fighting the climate crisis.
“Tenderd, being a huge believer in Green Construction, has invited like-minded, influential leaders and policy makers in the country to share their experience at the conference. It is indeed a rare opportunity to be able to pick the minds of the best and brightest for an industry which has been transforming the region’s urban landscape and helping to turn it into a high-tech hub.,” said Tenderd’s statement.
Among the speakers at the conference are H.E. Dr. Thani Al Zeyoudi, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Trade, who will detail the UAE government’s initiatives on adopting Green Construction and industry regulations.
Joining him will be Abdulla Balalaa, Acting Executive Director at Masdar, who will speak about the Masdar City project, one of the world’s most sustainable urban developments powered by renewable energy.
Rounding off the speakers list, Arjun Mohan, CEO at Tenderd, will delve into the role of technology in disrupting the traditional construction industry and introducing new, environment-friendly solutions.
All attendees will be able to post their questions for the speakers to answer live during the conference.
