De-industrial to de-carbon: the future of our built environment with Liz Peace CBE

The UK has a powerful story to tell when it comes to regenerating our towns and cities in the wake of industrial decline. We haven’t always got it right, and yet we’ve learned a lot along the way.

The UK has a powerful story to tell when it comes to regenerating our towns and cities in the wake of industrial decline. We haven’t always got it right, and yet we’ve learned a lot along the way. So as we face the daunting task of decarbonising our entire built environment, what lessons can we glean from the real estate and property sectors? What does the road ahead look like in this current moment of profound disruption? And where might the opportunities lie for investment in new technologies and the connected places of tomorrow?

Our guest on this episode is Liz Peace CBE, who has 35 years’ experience in government and the property sector. Liz spent her early career in the Ministry of Defence before moving into the property sector and becoming Chief Executive of the British Property Federation (BPF). Liz retired from the BPF at the end of 2014. Among many other roles, she Chairs the Architectural Heritage Fund and Real Estate Balance – the property industry’s leading diversity organisation – as well as the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, and the Sponsor Board for the Palace of Westminster Restoration and Renewal Programme.

She also serves as a non-executive Board Member at the Connected Places Catapult.
