Carbon Reduction Code
Posted: 2nd November 2021
Carbon reduction is more likely to happen when all organisations within a value chain are committed to reducing their footprint and saving costs. This Carbon Reduction Code for the Built Environment forms part of the Construction Leadership Council’s Construct Zero initiative. It is a first step to facilitate action and collaboration by relevant parties towards reducing carbon emissions (CO2 eq) related to design, construction, maintenance, operation and decommissioning of built assets. It is not intended to replace standards such as PAS 2080 (or equivalent), but it provides a framework for organisations to make a public commitment to and report on progress towards achieving Net Zero.
The Code was drafted by the CSIC Achieving Net Zero Cross-Industry Working Group in 2020 and first issued in 2021. It is expected that it will be updated as carbon targets change and progress towards net zero carbon is achieved. A process for organisations to commit to the code is detailed separately. The Code has three parts:
- Core commitments for all organisations
- Core commitments for client organisations and further commitments to facilitate the transition to Net Zero
- Core commitments for supply chain organisations and further commitments to facilitate the transition to Net Zero.
