Join us for the latest episode of Radio BE-Ex, where Fiona Cousins of Arup joins Yetsuh Frank to discuss navigating climate risk and scaling solutions for global impact.
As the risks that the climate crisis poses to physical assets becomes clearer, more and more stakeholders in the real estate sector are looking to guidelines like the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and reporting platforms like GRESB to help them measure and reduce their exposure. With carbon emissions emerging as a key indicator we talk with Fiona Cousins, a Director at Arup, about her work to bring solutions like carbon pricing to scale, and the emerging conversation around the impact of embodied carbon in the building industry. A leader in the green building movement for decades, Fiona brings deep experience in the engineering of sustainable buildings as well as the digital infrastructure professions require to meet aggressive climate action goals.

The Radio BE-Ex theme for 2021 is Radical Scale: the people, processes, and technology that will ensure the built environment meets the needs of the future.
