Construction, Property Managers Urge Climate Change Action
The letter, published in the Daily Telegraph, says climate change policy will “open up opportunities for businesses both at home and abroad.” It warns again “undermining” the Climate Change Act, which commits the UK to reducing its carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050 from 1990 levels.
Signatories include executives from Aggregate Industries, Argent, Atelier Ten, Balfour Beatty, BAM Construct, BAM Nuttall, Barratt Developments, Bennetts Associates Architects, Cundall, Deloitte Real Estate, GVA, Knauf Insulation Northern Europe, Land Securities Group, Legal & General Property, Rockwool, Saint-Gobain, SEGRO and Willmott Dixon.
The letter references the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest report, which says global emissions should drop by 40 to 70 percent between 2010 and 2050, and hit zero by 2100 to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius by the turn of the century.
