FOOTPRINT is the annual conference for the UK property world to learn how to deliver its net-zero carbon targets with an exhibition full of the companies and organisations who are making it happen.

Bringing together local authorities, developers, investors, designers, consultants, and contractors to find economic and sustainable solutions that will shift UK planning policy and accelerate action against climate change.

For the UK to achieve its net zero carbon targets by 2050, the built environment decision-makers need to act now. FOOTPRINT provides an essential platform to discover and learn how to reduce carbon emissions through innovation and collaboration.


A series of  videos about FOOTPRINT Brighton to explain what we are doing and why.

Featuring expert presentations and panel discussions on:

  • Materials and the Circular Economy

  • Zero Carbon Energy

  • Efficient Buildings

The FOOTPRINT Conference is the place to learn about emerging technologies and see how they can be adopted in everyday practice to accelerate action against climate change.


Purpose built pavilions on Hove Lawns (next to the seafront) will create exhibition spaces designed specifically to facilitate networking and exploratory conversations around urban development.

Attendees will be able to arrange meetings to connect with other delegates sharing knowledge and experiences and discussing shared business opportunities.


High-level debate and exchange of ideas to shape the property planning policy for a zero-carbon future.

Politicians, advisors, and regulators will meet developers, designers, and contractors to discuss how targets can be achieved and to understand the barriers to success.


Breakfast briefings, evening receptions, private dining options and Brighton’s 1.5˚ city-wide carbon footprint festival offers delegates the chance to really make the most of their time at FOOTPRINT.

With incredible support from Brighton & Hove City Council and MPs Caroline Lucas and Peter Kyle, this event is the UK’s first zero-carbon focused property event.

Tim Pyne founder of FOOTPRINT

Caroline Lucas MP

‘We are pleased to offer our support for FOOTPRINT. A UK-focused show providing a much-needed platform to discover, discuss and exploit opportunities for carbon reduction in the built environment is essential. Our city is the perfect place to showcase it.’

  • FOOTPRINT is the place to showcase how we can build sustainable developments and reduce the carbon footprint of building projects. In tackling the climate crisis, these are the conversations we need to be having.
    Peter Kyle
    MP for Hove, Shadow Minister for Justice
  • Despite the global impact of COVID-19 the UK property industry is resilient. FOOTPRINT will provide a forum for everyone to create a deliverable agenda for sustainable growth in the UK property market.

  • The construction sector has a huge role to play in enabling Local Authorities to meet ambitious carbon zero targets. I believe that FOOTPRINT will be the event that supports the creative discussions and working relationships required to achieve Zero Carbon living.
    Duncan Baker-Brown
    Architect, Lecturer at University of Brighton & Campaigner for Circular Economy
  • At last an event that addresses the key issues facing design, construction and development in the UK. The rich mix of consultants, clients, stakeholders and government together with the great location will make Footprint a huge success.
    Paul Monaghan Director of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects
    Liverpool City Region Design Champion and founding member of Architects Declare
  • The idea of the jobs fair on the last day is brilliant. It's exactly what school and university leavers need, and as a CDO, I realise that finding high calibre candidates to work for your organisation is a hugely time absorbing process.
    Adam Brockley
    Founder of Scape Student Living
  • As we move to create the ‘new normal’ post Covid, we have an unprecedented opportunity to re-write the rules around our environmental impact on the planet, this conference does exactly that.
    Gavin Stewart
    Executive Director Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership
  • FOOTPRINT is a hugely exciting opportunity to address the climate emergency which we all face as global citizens.
    James Blakey
    Planning Director Moda Living
  • FOOTPRINT has been set up to answer a need in the property market. We have all traipsed off to the South of France previously to meet up and discuss property issues. This is no longer a responsible action given the carbon footprint of getting there. Combined with the exit of Britain from the EU, we, in the UK market need to meet and discuss our national and international concerns. Footprint is set up to permit us to do this in an accessible, affordable and responsible way
