CPD Season 3 launches with a focus on The Climate Framework

Season 3 of the CAA’s CPD Lecture Series for Professionals is organised around the six core themes set out in the Climate Framework, which aims to provide all those working in the built environment with the knowledge required to support delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Session 1, Carbon & Energy

Session 1, Carbon & Energy

Register here for the first 60-minute session of the CAA’s new season of Continuing Professional Development for Professionals. Session 1 will focus on the theme of Energy and Carbon and will offer guidance on how to minimise energy use and associated carbon emissions, while also accelerating the transition to a global, decarbonised built environment. Key focus areas for this session will include passive design, active systems, and technologies, together with renewable energy generation and energy storage. Our contributors will illustrate how some of the core principles have been applied in a range of built case studies from around the Commonwealth.

A spokesperson for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) said: ‘The RIBA welcomes this CAA CPD programme that supports architects engagement with the UNSDGs and their role in delivering sustainable outcomes. The structure of this programme corresponds with our mandatory competence in climate literacy which we believe is necessary for all architects working across the globe.’
