The scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in the name : designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.

Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures.
