Chairman of the Irish Green Building council, Philip Lee said “We are delighted to be a partner in this event. This is the first chance to get a Green Building event that brings together the entire value chain of the built environment. It’s a complicated issue financing, insuring green building and retrofit and getting the quality right. ”
Broadcaster Duncan Stewart welcomed the timing of the event, “occurring at a most critical time as we run out of time to make urgent strategic decisions, on how we make best use of our dwindling resources and expertise to create a viable future for all”.
