Sprint Projects


CO2nstructZero in partnership with industry partners is delivering a series of sprint projects.  These projects provide deep dive focus on specific issues of interest to and impact on the sector through the lens of NetZero.   

Each project operates independently and is overseen by a project steering group.  The opportunity to join and participate in these projects is an exclusive benefit for those companies who have joined CO2nstructZero as Business Champions and Partners. 

Sprint 1 - Zero Diesel Routemap

The UK has made the commitment to be carbon net zero by 2050. For the construction industry this will include reducing and eliminating the sector’s use of diesel, the dominant fuel in construction across the UK and accelerating alternative solutions.

In 2023 the Construction Leadership Council responded to this challenge by publishing the Zero Diesel Routemap. This ambitious document sets out an action plan  to cut diesel use by 78 per cent by 2035.

To support the delivery of the plan, there are industry-led workstreams that cover the four key themes:

This microsite provides details of each of these workstreams, including the industry experts involved in each, the actions they are delivering, the products produced on behalf of industry, and news relating to their work.

Each workstream is also generating case studies
