The Paris Climate Agreement set in motion sustainability targets with the vast majority of countries putting action plans in place, but what does that mean for the Built Environment industry? We talk not only about idealistic smart and sustainable cities, energy simulations of any sort, pre-fabrication modules, manufacturing production and disassembly, transportation and mobility, and emissions control – all of which all pertain to the Circular Economy – but we get down to the dollars and cents and what it means for owners and the running costs involved in such implementations.

In setting the path for our future generations, we occasionally need to acknowledge those who have gone before us, traditional owners of the land and their cultures. Let’s come together and discuss the myriad topics in the continuation of the greatest Story – the Story of Us.

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at
