With only a month to go, preparations are underway for the 1st International Conference of Net Zero Carbon Built Environment (ZCBE) 2024. The conference will take place from July 3-5, 2024, at the University of Nottingham, UK, and is set to be a significant event for researchers, industry experts, and policymakers dedicated to advancing sustainable building practices.
