Sweco appointed to UKGBC’s Whole Life Carbon Roadmap project
The Roadmap, announced in December, aims to develop a trajectory of carbon reduction targets and actions, covering the total lifecycle impact of the built environment in the UK, and secure the support of relevant industry actors in delivering decarbonisation. The project is a co-owned process that brings together key stakeholders from across the built environment sector.
We are delighted to announce that Matthew Mapp, one of our Sustainability consultants, has been selected as a member of one of these groups, the New Build Task Force, to which he will bring his expertise and knowledge of residential life cycle assessments to help steer the future development of net zero aspirations from the embodied side. This is huge achievement for Matthew as he will play an integral role in promoting Sweco within this industry body as well as influencing future policy and sustainability in the built environment.
Tom Spurrier, Roadmap Project Lead at UKGBC, said: “Delivering the carbon reductions required to bring us in line with a 1.5 degree trajectory is an industry-wide challenge that must be met with an industry-wide response. It is therefore essential we come together to develop a shared, coherent plan of action which sets out clear actions and targets for stakeholders across our industry to work towards, which is exactly the purpose of the Whole Life Carbon Roadmap project.
“The volume of applications received for each task group is testament to the level of ambition across our industry. The practical experience and input from each task group member will be instrumental in ensuring the Roadmap can be readily adopted by industry, and put us on track to meeting out climate targets without delay.”
