At NBS, we believe that the construction industry has a major role to play in tackling the global climate change emergency. We're committed to helping our customers design and build a more sustainable built environment whilst setting our own sustainability targets to contribute to a greener future for all. As part of our mission, we've created this webinar series which aims to address a variety of issues that the construction industry faces and some of the solutions for a more sustainable built environment.
