Singapore summit explores sustainable economy drivers

CIBSE hosts session at World Engineers Summit


CIBSE hosted a session under the building section at the World Engineers Summit, held in Singapore in July.

Organised by the Institution of Engineers, Singapore and the Applied Energy Innovation Institute, the summit brought together more than 400 delegates from more than 30 countries, with around 160 papers discussed.

Its theme, ‘Low carbon cities and urban energy,’ was particularly relevant after the Paris Agreement. A sustainable economy requires agents of change to share, collaborate and debate on engineering matters – not only to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also to develop awareness and solutions that look beyond low carbon to carbon neutral.

During the CIBSE session, Peter Bull of Arup, delivered his keynote presentation on ‘Drivers of change for building services engineers’, and he was followed by Tom Gwyn and Ricardo Moreira, from XCO2.

CIBSE’s involvement reinforces the importance of the work our members do in today’s environment.
