The next ten years are critical if we are to stand any chance of limiting temperature rises to 1.5 degrees. We need an urgent shift to net zero carbon buildings, and deep cuts in emissions across the whole built environment.

UKGBC wants to ensure that the built environment industry is at the forefront of climate leadership. To enable this, on 20 September, we will be launching a climate leadership model with a call to action for all businesses to use this in setting their built environment specific commitments.

The 20 September is the date of the Global Climate Strike, where schoolchildren striking for climate action have called for all adults to join them.

To change everything, we need everyone.

UKGBC will:

  • Enable all its staff to participate in the Global Climate Strike on 20 September
  • Encourage UKGBC members to join us for part of the strike to show strong built environment support for urgent climate action from policy-makers and industry
  • Share our approach, and publicly stated climate commitments of our members using our Climate Leadership Model

The strike events are being organised in major cities across the UK. Once details are available, UKGBC will share these with interested members and, where practical, suggest meet-up points for members in cities where UKGBC has a permanent presence: Birmingham, Bristol, London and Manchester.

Individuals at UKGBC member organisations can sign up to receive updates on how they can join with other members and get involved with the Global Climate Strike.
