Achieving Net Zero in Construction
Earlier this year we conducted research with one hundred senior executives of UK construction firms which have collectively been involved in over £26.6 billion worth of construction projects over the past year.
The survey revealed that 85% of respondents think enough is being done to reach net zero on time and a similar number believe COP26 Summit was instrumental in raising environmental, social and governance issues on the construction agenda.
Encouragingly, the survey also reveals that respondents see realistic commercial incentives for improving sustainability in future building projects. However for all the positivity, there are a number of barriers to achieving net zero targets.
In our Sustainable by Design Report we explore the key findings from our research.
