David Savage quoted by The Construction Index on the implications of the proposed The Carbon Emissions (Buildings) Bill

David Savage has been quoted by The Construction Index on the implications of the proposed The Carbon Emissions (Buildings) Bill. 

On the proposals which seek to regulate embodied carbon in the building process, David commented:

"This proposed legislation would – if passed – represent a hugely significant step towards net zero for the construction sector, and indeed the UK hitting its carbon emission targets.

"This bill would, for the first time, require the construction sector to measure and report the embodied carbon in its projects – a sector which accounts for up to 25% of UK carbon emissions.

He added: "That said, while climate change is helping the construction sector to evolve and will play a key role in UK decarbonisation, government will also need to look carefully at how to help the sector make these transitions, especially with so many SMEs in the industry who may feel financial and other challenges around implementing these changes."
