The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has launched a consultation inviting industry feedback on the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap draft proposals, which aim to provide a common vision and agreed actions for achieving net zero carbon in the construction, operation and demolition of buildings and infrastructure.
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.
UKGBC is seeking feedback from stakeholders from a variety of specialities and professions within the industry who are interested in delivering a net zero built environment. Proposals outlined in the draft Roadmap span the buildings sector and affect all domestic and non-domestic new builds, retrofits, and infrastructure.
The consultation document outlines a summary of proposals and recommendations set out within the draft roadmap and specific questions related to those proposal.

In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions – aided by the advice and experience of our editorial steering committee.
The results of the 2021 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
