Consultations begin for the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for buildings and infrastructure

The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) is launching a consultation inviting industry feedback on the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap draft proposals.

Announced at the end of 2020, the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap aims to provide a common vision and agreed actions for achieving net zero carbon in the construction, operation and demolition of buildings and infrastructure.

To support development of the Roadmap, and to ensure it is consensus led, UKGBC is seeking industry feedback on suggested proposals set out within a draft version of the Roadmap.

There are three key elements within the Roadmap consultation draft where feedback is being sought:

  • A Net Zero Scenario calculating an emissions budget and trajectory to 2050 for the UK Built Environment sector, based on existing data and forward-looking projections
  • Government and Local Authority Policy Recommendations that set out the critical policies and milestones needed to accelerate the built environment sector’s decarbonisation
  • A Stakeholder Action Plan that identifies key actions required for stakeholders within the built environment 

Proposals outlined in the draft Roadmap span the buildings sector and affect all domestic and non-domestic new builds, retrofits, and infrastructure, which is why UKGBC is keen to hear from stakeholders from a variety of specialities and professions within the industry. 

The deadline for responding to this consultation is 15th August 2021 and feedback must be submitted using this survey: https://www.getfeedback.com/r/y95kuxcz/
