‘Transforming Construction: Delivering a Low Carbon Future’ 

The National Federation of Builders’ (NFB) Major Contractors Group (MCG) is arming the construction industry with practical tools for main contractors to start or accelerate their journey towards achieving net zero carbon with a new decarbonisation handbook.

Transforming Construction: Delivering a Low Carbon Future’ contains practical actions that main contractors can adopt and implement in their own businesses. 

Designed to help the industry collaborate on delivering the UK’s net zero ambitions the handbook presents staged actions and measures for contractors to adopt and implement to work towards the ultimate goal of net zero while being affordable and fitting with each business’ vision. The report covers multiple areas where changes can be made to help decarbonise including:

  • developing teams to lead change
  • reducing the carbon footprint of staff and corporate
  • recording, accounting and reducing emissions associated with construction projects
  • reducing embodied carbon
  • reducing carbon emissions through building performance
  • reducing carbon through procurement
