"Measurement and Standards to Enable a Sustainable City"
18 July 2012, Arup, Fitzroy Street, London
With increasing migration from rural to city living, we cannot continue to manage and monitor cities in the way we do now and still meet targets for carbon emissions, water use, waste management, air quality etc. With the additional drive towards a low carbon economy, there is a move across multiple and varying groups to continuously assess and reduce emissions and operate and deliver their services and activities in a more sustainable way at local, community and city scale. Measurement and standards are crucial to underpinning the science, technology, policy and regulation critical to delivering that sustainable model at scale.
The Measurement Network Energy and Environment Special Interest Group supported by the AIRTO [Climate Change and Sustainability Interest Group], Carbon Disclosure Project and the British Standards Institution, is hosting a full-day meeting in Central London concentrating on discussions around:
