FES has become a Business Champion for the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) Construct Zero Performance Framework. Business Champions each make commitments to help the sector’s drive towards reducing carbon emissions in the delivery and operation of the built environment. There are now more than 50 companies across the UK working to unify the construction industry in its efforts to cut carbon.
The Construct Zero Performance Framework consists of a set of commitments the Business Champions have made to help their customers cut carbon emissions. The CLC will track the progress towards the commitments. This data will also be used to encourage businesses to benchmark their achievements against the rest of the construction and facilities management sector, creating healthy competition in the drive to decarbonise Britain.
FES Director, Jason Cross said “we are looking forward to working with the CLC’s ConstructZero programme as a Business Champion. Sustainability is a key driver for the FES Group; we achieved carbon net zero for 2019 – 2020 and we welcome this opportunity to engage with other Business Champions to identify innovations and initiatives that will drive the sector towards further carbon reductions.“
To be a Construct Zero Business Champion, organisations must provide evidence of their net zero target and the initiatives they are implementing to become more sustainable. Businesses that have been selected as Champions will work closely with the Construction Leadership Council to share guidance and best practice for the benefit of the construction and facilities management industries and in turn their clients.
