Building a Sustainable Future

The way we build, refurbish, live and work in our buildings has a vital role to play in saving energy, reducing our carbon emissions and affecting our impact on the environment. The statistics are staggering:

  • 50% of UK greenhouse gas emissions are from running buildings
  • 30% of those emissions could be cut by cheap and simple measures
  • 10% of UK emissions come from the production of building materials
  • 20% of those materials on every new building ends up in a skip

The challenge is simple; we need to use less energy and use our materials more wisely. We will then create less carbon dioxide when we manufacture, build and live in our buildings.
