Construction, Property Managers Urge Climate Change Action

Construction and property management executives from 18 firms have signed a UK Green Building Council open letter urging the British government to step up its action to slow climate change.

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.

One thought on “Construction, Property Managers Urge Climate Change Action

  1. It’s great to see companies working together and not wait til Gov’t mandates kick in. Going forward, I feel other companies small to large will want to begin similar joint efforts. Good going!

    Sincerely,
