A green lobby body has launched a consultation on its development of a ‘whole life carbon roadmap’ which aims to provide agreed ideas and actions for achieving net zero carbon in the construction, operation and demolition of buildings and infrastructure.
The UK Green Building Council is seeking “industry feedback on suggested proposals set out within a draft version of the Roadmap”.
There are three key elements within the Roadmap consultation draft where feedback is being sought:
1. A Net Zero Scenario calculating an emissions budget and trajectory to 2050 for the UK Built Environment sector, based on existing data and forward-looking projections.
2. Government and Local Authority Policy Recommendations that set out the critical policies and milestones needed to accelerate the built environment sector’s decarbonisation.
3. A Stakeholder Action Plan that identifies key actions required for stakeholders within the built environment.
UKGBC is seeking feedback from stakeholders interested in delivering a net zero built environment. Proposals outlined in the draft Roadmap span the buildings sector and affect all domestic and non-domestic new builds, retrofits, and infrastructure.
Therefore, UKGBC said it is "keen to hear from stakeholders from a variety of specialities and professions within the industry".
The consultation document outlines a summary of proposals and recommendations set out within the draft roadmap and specific questions related to those proposal. The deadline for responding to this consultation is 15th August 2021.
