At COP26 in Glasgow the UK Government set out to be a global climate leader. UKGBC launched the Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap setting out the policy and technical pathway needed for the whole of the built environment reach net-zero. The project drew on the expertise of over 100 members and stakeholders and has become a common vision and benchmark to understand government and industry progress.
With the window rapidly closing on 1.5C, national government policy to decarbonise the second largest emitter in the UK – the built environment – couldn’t be more important. This rescheduled event is to launch a scorecard analysis of Government action against the policy recommendations in the Roadmap and the big challenges and opportunities ahead. We will reflect on where we are now, and what more needs to be done to get the UK on track to meet its climate goals and achieve that common vision for a better-built environment.
