CLC seeks ways to demonstrate net zero progress

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC)’s Net Zero workstream, CO2nstruct Zero is seeking industry input on how the industry should demonstrate progress on its collective net zero journey.

The findings from the survey will help create a performance framework that the industry can use to measure impact and understand when and where further action needs to be taken when addressing net zero goals.

The overarching framework will amplify many of the goals and initiatives already shared in this space, and ensure industry speaks in a single and unified voice.

Commenting on the survey’s launch, Andrew Griffith MP, the UK’s net zero business champion, said: “The construction industry has a vital role to play in achieving society’s net zero ambitions and how we measure its progress will be vital to, not only meeting our targets, but ensuring we bring all businesses – large and small – on the journey.”

Andy Mitchell, co-chair of the CLC, added: “A comprehensive and cohesive approach to measuring net zero progress is the foundation for so much more. Most importantly, it will ensure the industry can be both challenged and praised. I’d urge all organisations and business groups working in our sector to complete the survey today and help us shape a net zero future.”

The CLC’s online survey is now open and closes at 5pm on Friday 11 June, 2021.
