The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has announced a Steering Group and four new task groups which will support the development of the Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for the Built Environment. The Active Building Centre, along with key contemporaries, will be supporting the Residential Retrofit group.

 


Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap

The UKGBC’s Roadmap, announced in December, aims to develop a trajectory of carbon reduction targets and actions, covering the total lifecycle impact of the built environment in the UK, securing the support of relevant industry actors in delivering decarbonisation. Their project is a co-owned process that brings together key stakeholders from across the built environment sector.

Four task groups comprised of over 50 experts have been formed to work through the decarbonisation implications across sectors and develop a timeline of solutions. An industry-wide Steering Group has also been formed to oversee the Roadmap and provide strategic input throughout the process.
