The UK’s Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform is seeking feedback on a joint Government and industry strategy for sustainable construction.
The plan is to help the industry deliver more sustainable construction methods and products, and is geared towards decision-makers in Government and industry in England and Wales.
The draft strategy’s key areas include:
- Reducing the carbon footprint of activities within the construction sector
- Producing zero net waste at construction site level
- Developing voluntary agreements and initiatives between the construction industry and its clients to help reduce their carbon footprint
- Creating a safer industry by improving skills, boosting the number of workers receiving training and retaining more skilled workers.
