The BSRIA Briefing 2021: Net Zero Carbon Future – ‘Necessity not Choice’ combines thought leadership and networking opportunities, providing sufficient appeal for a wide range of industry stakeholders, including Manufacturers, Building Owners, Operators, Contractors and Designers. 

This year's presentations will be structured around three topics: 

  • Climate
  • Innovation 
  • Behaviour 

How to be bold today not tomorrow, what innovation to embrace and how to achieve the necessary change in behaviour?

Covid-19 Policy

Please note that The BSRIA Briefing 2021 is planned as an in-person event following the lifting of government restrictions. Should the restrictions on indoor events change, making in-person events impossible, BSRIA will move the event to a dedicated virtual conferencing platform.

The Brewery take the health and safety of its clients, partners and staff very seriously. The situation surrounding Covid-19 is rapidly evolving and the safety measures in place are in no way definitive. The Government guidance on Covid-19 is updated frequently and consequently these safety measures will be continually assessed and updated in line with any changes to the Government policy and regulations.
