M Moser London recently hosted a decarbonisation roundtable with industry partners, discussing the challenges and opportunities in the construction sector.
Moderated by Senior Design Strategy Associate, Jeni Durksen, the event centred on collective action to accelerate change in the industry. The panel discussed material repurposing and a slower approach to product cycles – predicting fewer new products from more sustainable sources.
