CICV report to help Green Recovery

The CICV Forumv has published an in-depth report aimed at helping public bodies make decisions on where public funding in construction gives the highest economic returns to help support a green recovery.

The report, carried out by Fraser of Allander Institute at University of Strathclyde, was commissioned by the Forum to improve understanding of how investment in construction activity creates multiplier effects across social, economic, and environmental impact measures. It also aims to support policy makers, clients and investors in understanding the return on investment associated with repair and maintenance activity.

John McKinney, Regional Manager of the NFRC, said: “The report highlights that investment in construction, including repairs and improvements, can play a vital role in a green recovery, and the important role Scotland’s existing buildings have in that recovery.  

“We will look to highlight this report to the Scottish Government and funding bodies to assist in maximising the economic and carbon benefits of investment in the built environment.”
