Net Zero & Biodiversity


Accelerating the sector’s transition to Net Zero and mitigating the impacts of climate change.


  • Draw on the expertise of the Green Construction Board to drive action around the Construct Zero 9 priorities including:
    • Construction activity: recycle & reduce waste and minimise whole life carbon impact of projects (targeting steel and cement).
    • Buildings: minimise operational carbon through retrofit & higher energy efficiency standards for new buildings.
    • Transport: accelerating the roll out of zero emission plant and vehicles.
  • Enhance resource efficiency (water).
  • Increase biodiversity and environmental net gain.
