The Construction Leadership Council has announced that Skanska and GRAHAM are among four new companies to join its CO2nstruct Zero campaign.
CO2nstruct Zero brings together businesses from across the sector to deliver the change needed to reduce carbon use in construction. It includes a roadmap for change and clear measures to show how industry is performing against this.
One key element of the campaign is the growing list of companies that have committed to become CO2nstruct Zero Business Champions. The Champions each set out how they are driving down carbon in their business, and work to share this good practice with industry.
The companies join more than 80 other companies from across the industry that are lending
their support to the campaign. CLC Co-chair Andy Mitchell said: “I am delighted that more than a year on from launch we are seeing no let-up in support for CO2nstruct Zero. As we start to see detailed activity across the sector to drive radical change in areas such as low-carbon concrete, diesel use reduction, and low carbon funding and finance, these Champions will play a key role in promoting better ways of working for everyone”
The CLC’s mission is to provide sector leadership to the construction industry. The expanded CLC has twelve workstreams that operate collaboratively to address the biggest issues facing the sector. Workstreams include skills and inclusion, building safety, Net Zero and business models. The CLC is co-chaired by Lee Rowley MP, Minister for Business and Industry, and Andy Mitchell CBE, CEO of Thames Tideway.
