Net Zero Special
The UK has a legally binding target to reach ‘net-zero’ carbon emissions by 2050. What is meant by net-zero, and what does it mean for the roofing industry? The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has tried to make this more tangible for construction by setting out a framework of nine principles based around the three themes of transport, buildings, and construction activity—this initiative is known as CO2nstructZero. In this episode, we talk to Stuart Young, from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), about this initiative and how businesses can sign up to become CO2nstructZero Champions. We also go through the nine principles in detail and what they mean for our industry with NFRC’s Safety, Health and Environmental Officer Gary Walpole.
