Green Construction Board releases 'Low Carbon Routemap'

The Green Construction Board (GCB) has urged the construction industry to cut carbon emissions.

The board published its Low Carbon Routemap this week. The plan explained that the industry must take responsibility for carbon reduction if greenhouse gas emissions are to be cut by 80% by 2050.

“This Routemap will help shape our industrial strategy for construction as we plan for the long term. It’s a valuable contribution to our continuing work with industry and shows that even closer collaboration is required in the future if we want to get closer to achieving our objective,” said GCB co-chair Michael Fallon.

“While the Routemap shows that the 80% reduction target is a very challenging one, we must not lose sight of the overall objective which is to minimise carbon emissions.”

The board also launched a “Top20 Tips” and a series of case studies to provide examples of good practice.
