This report stresses that “from residential to commercial buildings, the UK’s built environment is responsible for 25% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) warns that to date there has been a lack of Government impetus or policy levers to assess and reduce these emissions. With climate deadlines looming, urgent action is needed.”
Our members contributed significantly to this report, as did other organisations allied in this movement.
SBUK demonstrated through analytical reporting and data, that natural materials are a robust solution to the problems that the built environment is striving to overcome.
