At COP26 last November, the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) launched the UK Roadmap for achieving a net zero carbon built environment by 2050. Here, we show how a selection of FIS members are stepping up to the mark.

The built environment is directly responsible for 25% of the total UK carbon footprint so, has a critical role to play in the national transition to net zero. Co-created by industry, the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap provides a set of actions for achieving a net zero UK built environment by 2050.

It quantifies the specific emission reductions across sub-sectors of the built environment that will need to take place to meet the 2050 deadline. It establishes a net zero emissions budget and trajectory to 2050, consistent with wider UK carbon targets and budgets as set out by the Climate Change Committee (CCC), enabling
government and the UK built environment to benchmark progress.
