MIPIM Rolls Out Road to Zero Area
MIPIM, the world's largest international real estate event, has inaugurated the Road to Zero area to speed up the change of the built environment to a more sustainable model.
The new 400-square-meter zone will include exhibition, networking, and conference space, with an emphasis on practical approaches to decarbonising the real estate industry.
MIPIM's Road to Zero will bring together all important participants in the built environment involved in this process, including sustainable investors, developers, industry and innovative solution providers.
Along with Schneider Electric and Schindler as gold and silver sponsors, big brands such as PwC, Veolia, Building Minds, and Carrier have already been announced as exhibitors.
Carrying on the “Driving Urban Change” theme from MIPIM 2022, the programme of the Road to Zero panel talks will cover the following topics:
Decarbonising energy infrastructure and investing in low-carbon technologies
How to implement smart urban tech solutions to develop sustainable cities
Increasing biodiversity in urban areas
Implementing net-zero data strategies
Increasing productivity through offsite modular construction, 3D printing & Industry 4.0
The Road to Zero stage is one of six new stages that will debut at MIPIM 2023. The Urban Land Institute (ULI) will be the exclusive content partner for the Road to Zero stage. They will work with the World Green Building Council (WGBC) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBGCSD) to organise the stage.
Nicolas Kozubek, MIPIM Director, said: “As the real estate industry strives to achieve net zero, MIPIM aims to assist exhibitors and attendees by providing them with best practices and case studies. The Road to Zero stage will shine a spotlight on ESG, innovation and technology solutions that help to accelerate the transformation of the built environment towards a more sustainable model.”
