The oneyear countdown to COP26 has officially begun and business leadership only continues to grow, as evidenced by the UK’s ever-increasing number of signatories to the Net Zero Carbon Buildings CommitmentUKGBC is now taking this leadership further as one of several European GBCs who are working on proposals for a major new initiative: the development of a Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap for the built environment. 

The roadmap aims to build consensus on the pathway to a net zero carbon built environment through: 

  • Developing carbon targets in line with the Paris Agreement 
  • Setting out actions, owners and processes to achieve targets 
  • Enabling consistent sector-based action plans 

This is your first chance to learn about how this roadmap can apply to your organisation and what actions you can take as we move towards a net zero built environment.
