Green Construction Board: Working in Partnership with Industry to Provide a Platform for Green Growth. Quick Links:
The Green Construction Board has developed the Low Carbon Routemap for the Built Environment following extensive consultation across Government and industry. It serves as a visual tool that enables stakeholders to understand the policies, actions and key decision points required to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment vs 1990 levels by 2050. The Routemap also sets out actions, together with key performance indicators that can be used to deliver and measure progress in meeting the 2050 target.
The Routemap covers both infrastructure and buildings sectors, and addresses segments of operational and capital (embodied) carbon emissions. It includes three key components which are all freely available at the following link:here
