The 8th International ICARB Conference 2023 will be held in Edinburgh from 25-26 September 2023.


Measuring Net Zero: Carbon Accounting for Buildings and Communities

Ambitious GHG emission reduction targets and budgets are simply are not working. Globally emissions keep growing. Why? How can we bridge the gap between targets and emissions? Can we improve the way we account for carbon? NOW is time to get real about reducing emissions.

ICARB 2023 brings together industry, the professions, policy makers and academics to tackle both the big questions, and the details, around carbon accounting for buildings and communities to clarify, inform, share, link and enable all involved from home owners to national governments.

Two full days of Plenary and Panel sessions and Specialist Workshops on the 25th and 26th will be bridged by a unique networking event in Edinburgh Castle, with a view of the Crown Jewels, the whole of Edinburgh and the mountains to the north.

Dr Julio Bros-Williamson, Chancellor's Fellow in Net Zero Buildings, from the School of Engineering will be co-chairing the conference.
