Greg Craig, Chair of the CBI Construction Council, said:
“The CBI welcomes and supports the CO2nstruct Zero initiative being driven and coordinated by the Construction Leadership Council. Rapidly reducing carbon emissions and improving the environmental performance of built assets is the industry's biggest long-term challenge.
“CO2nstruct Zero will focus minds on practical and useful steps businesses can take now, while setting out a framework for the innovation and changes that must happen over the long-term.
“To support construction to play its part in a net-zero economy, the CBI Construction Council will champion the development and sharing of best practices across the industry, and work with the CBI to ensure the UK policy environment incentivises businesses to act, invest and innovate.”
