An RICS inventory of the most recent news, surveys, research and reports on Sustainability, featuring events, industry insights and training updates.


Last year, political and business leaders from around the world convened in Paris for COP21, the United Nation’s annual climate change meeting. We worked with business and industry leaders to shape the programme of ‘Buildings Day’, a day dedicated to the role that the built environment can play in achieving global climate targets.

COP22, which will be held between 7–18 November in Marrakech, will once again host Buildings Day, and this time it's all about showing progress and stressing the importance of measurement, data and accountability.
