CLC calls for construction industry input on net-zero progress


The Construction Leadership Council (CLC)’s net-zero workstream, CO2nstruct Zero is seeking views on how the industry should demonstrate progress on its journey to net-zero

The findings will feed into the creation of a performance framework – a suite of metrics, targets, milestones and commitments – that the industry can use to measure impact and understand when and where further action needs to be taken.

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.

The CLC’s online survey is now open and closes at 17:00 on Friday 11 June 2021.

It should not take more than 10 minutes to complete and is open to anyone working in the construction sector/industry.

A vital role to play

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 Construction Leadership Council (CLC), said: “A comprehensive and cohesive approach to measuring net-zero progress is the foundation for so much more.

“Most importantly, it will ensure 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.”
