As Ireland heads into another potential property bubble, in addition to soaring rents fuelled by lack of supply, it has never been more key for planners and regulators to tackle the problem. The urgent need to build a sustainable bubble free model for generations to come is critical for a fair and equitable property sector.
Building on the success of the 2014 Sunday Business Post Property Summit the SBP Sustainable Property Summit will showcase leading thinking on sustainability, carbon neutral homes, planning and the regulatory & financial landscape in the commercial and residential building environment.
Housing affordability is a political hot topic. Unaffordable housing is both socially and environmentally unsustainable and the Summit considers how the issues of affordability can be addressed without compromising on housing quality and sustainability.
The Sustainable Property Summit is your opportunity to participate, debate and network with like-minded peers around the critical challenges and opportunities facing the property sector in Ireland .
