For the recent COP26 Conference, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) 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.
This partnership programme explores the “cutting edge sustainable methods the sector is adopting”. This is presented through the lens of the CLC’s Construct Zero 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 premiered on Thursday 11 November on the COP26 YouTube channel during the showpiece event in Glasgow, and is also available via the CLC website or to view below:
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, 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.”
