Construction Industry Showcases ‘Building a Greener Britain’ at COP26

The Construction Leadership Council, on which CEF sits as a Senior Advisor, has linked up with ITN Productions Industry News to announce its ‘Building a Greener Britain’ programme as its contribution to deliver a zero-carbon built environment at COP26.

This partnership programme explores the cutting-edge sustainable methods the sector is adopting. This is presented through the lens of the CLC’s industry-change Construct Zero programme, which is the campaign to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry, in response to the climate emergency.

Anchored by presenter Clare Nasir, Building A Greener Britain, features interviews with industry experts and informative news items looking at how the construction sector is going ‘green’. The full video will be premiered at 9:30am, Thursday 11 November, on the COP26 YouTube channel, and available at the same time on the CLC website.  The recortding remains available after the event on youtube.

Andy Mitchell CBE, Co-Chair, CLC, said: “The Construction Leadership Council brings together representatives from across the construction sector, from sole traders to major contractors and in this video, that will launch at COP26, we're addressing the biggest challenge which is climate change. Construct Zero sets out an action plan and headline metrics against which the construction industry can collectively measure and monitor its progress to net zero on a quarterly basis. We are also showcasing business champions in our sector who are doing great work in reducing carbon emissions” Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of ITN Productions Industry News said: “We are delighted launch our programme with CLC that explores the innovative range of new methods and initiatives the construction industry is introducing and developing as it makes the move towards a net zero future. We hope the content will be used to support the CLC’s Construct Zero programme and show the immediate need for action.”
