About the webinar

What do you need to know to be ready for the current and upcoming Net Zero requirements?

With increasing focus on net zero obligations, and the stress that is likely to put onto housing providers budgets, we pulled together a panel of experts to discuss exactly what you need to know to appropriately plan for Net Zero. They go over what your requirements are, how housing providers are already utilising data to better understand and improve their properties and what has already been tried and what has already failed.
