CLC shares COP26 plans

The Construction Leadership Council plans to use COP26 to broker agreement between industry leaders, young professionals and the public to deliver net zero in the built environment.

The CLC has announced  its line-up of speakers and panelists for the 'Construction: The Built Environment'  sessions during the conference.

Organisations and bodies including Actuate UK, Saint Gobain and the Construction Industry Council will discuss how they, as Construct Zero partners, are already advancing the importance of retrofit, materials, and design/professional services in delivering Net Zero. 

CLC representatives will debate some of Construct Zero’s priorities with four of its current Business Champions (Keltbray, Costain, Atkins and Travis Perkins), identifying some of the challenges they face, and opportunities to share best practice. 

The CLC will also be releasing its film, ‘Building a Greener Britain’, produced with ITN. 

Andy Mitchell, co-chair of the CLC said: “The world will be watching as the Construction Leadership Council takes the stage as part of events at COP26. 

"I am delighted with our line-up of industry experts who can speak about the role that construction can play in delivering net zero carbon. 

"We hope that they can lead change not just in the UK but promote better outcomes for construction worldwide”. 

Hannah Vickers, CLC CO2nstructZero and Chief of staff at Mace said: “COP26 has the potential to be a landmark moment for the planet, and it’s outcome will have a great impact on the construction sector in the UK. 

"The Construction Leadership Council has a huge role to play as our sector transforms itself over the coming years, and we’re very pleased to able to announce the line up for our event on Cities and the Built Environment Day at the conference. 

"I would encourage everyone in the industry to get involved in anyway you can – our industry is changing quickly, and we must work together current and future leaders to ensure success”.
