CO2nstruct Zero: Become a business champion
In November 2020, the government published its 10-point plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, setting out a path to Net Zero by 2050.
Last month, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) announced CO2nstruct Zero, a cross-industry change programme to drive carbon out of all parts of the construction sector, from manufacturing and design to construction and operation of assets.
It is not intended to develop new solutions, roadmaps or pathways, but to bring people together to consolidate collective actions and plans for the sector.
CO2nstruct Zero’s priorities are based on the Climate Change Committee’s 6th Carbon Budget and include:
As well as developing an action plan for the priorities above, CO2nstruct Zero will also set out measurable targets and performance criteria, signpost industry towards action they can take and initiatives they can support, and showcase actions taken across the wider construction industry on decarbonisation in response to the climate emergency – to celebrate small wins and inspire greater ones. CO2nstruct Zero therefore seeks to identify business champions from across the industry.
TRADA encourages you to participate and share your approach to delivering on the nine priority areas listed above. To be considered as a business champion, simply respond to these questions and send your submission to Stuart.Young@beis.gov.uk. Business champions will be chosen on a monthly basis, so have your bids in by 15th of each month.
