The Five Client Carbon Commitments

The UK construction industry and builds and maintains the infrastructure that we all need as we go about our daily lives, and is vitally important for the UK’s economic prosperity.  However,  construction is also a significant contributor to the UK’s carbon emissions, and it is time for us to take action.

CO2nstruct Zero is calling upon clients to act with the launch of our Five Client Carbon Commitments – simple, practical steps that organisations can take to show how they are reducing their carbon emissions and by when.

The Five Client Carbon Commitments are:

  1. Procure for low carbon construction and provide incentives in our contracts
  2. Set phase out dates for fossil fuel use
  3. Eliminate the most carbon intensive concrete products
  4. Eliminate the most carbon intensive steel products
  5. Adopt PAS 2080, Carbon Management in Infrastructure, as a common standard


Six organisations have taken the bold step to be the first to sign up – we welcome the leadership shown by Anglian Water, Heathrow, the Lower Thames Crossing, National Highways, Northumbrian Water and Sellafield Ltd – and invite other organisations to join them.
