Building Talks… Net Zero - Episode 1: An interview with RIBA president Simon Allford and jargon busting with Cundall’s Simon Wyatt

Season 1, Episode 1,   Oct 25, 2021, 11:40 AM

The Building Talks... Net Zero podcast is a brand-new series looking at how the built environment can help us hit the UK’s net zero carbon targets.
Just days from the start of the COP26 climate change conference, the government has published its long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy and its Net Zero Strategy, which we analyse with expert Simon Wyatt, a partner at Cundall.
We also talk to new RIBA president Simon Allford about why he is optimistic that the construction industry can have a hugely positive impact on the carbon agenda.
Simon Wyatt is also our regular net zero jargon buster, so do send in confusing terms that he can unpick for us, or tell us about some greenwashing you’ve seen in the industry. To get in touch with the show go to: Twitter: @BuildingNews, Email:
Hosted by Building’s editor Chloe McCulloch with Elizabeth Hopkirk, assistant editor at Building Design. Audio production by Tariq Aziz.
