Actuate UK publishes manifesto
Engineering services alliance Actuate UK has published its full manifesto online.
The document, available here, highlights Actuate UK’s initial focus on four key areas for the sector and the wider economy, society and the environment:
- The post-COVID world of business
- Building safety
- Skills for the future
- The climate crisis and the drive to Net Zero Carbon
According to Actuate UK, “The built environment is at a crossroads. The Building Safety Bill sets out radical and far-reaching changes to the way that we engineer our buildings. The emerging findings from the Hackitt Review and the Grenfell Tower Enquiry have made plain the need for cultural change in our industry.
“Added to this, recovering from COVID-19 creates a crucial opportunity for our sector to respond and contribute to the UKs Green Recovery efforts and net zero carbon agenda by leveraging our combined expertise.
“In order to deliver meaningful change in all these areas, developing skills and retaining the talent of our sector is an essential underlying and ongoing challenge which must be overcome.”
