The common mantra in estates decarbonisation is to reduce energy consumption through better insulated buildings and then decarbonise the heating, however this fails to address the elephant in the room; how much space you really need.

Our buildings and estates are notoriously underutilised. It’s not uncommon for university estates to see figures of 20% and commercial office at a lofty 40% utilisation! However, every square meter of space carries a significant cost and carbon burden. Our panel will discuss how estates teams are using data to tackle this issue.
