This is the final report of an Innovation and Growth Team (IGT), drawn from across the UK construction industry to consider how the UK construction industry can rise to the challenge of the low carbon agenda. It follows Emerging Findings published in March 2010, and builds on those findings, as charged by Mark Prisk MP, the Minister for Business and Enterprise in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). This report wholly replaces the Emerging Findings, with text that is still relevant brought forward to this final report. Unsurprisingly, since it is only 7 months since the publication of that preliminary report, the over-arching context remains much the same:

  1. The United Kingdom's commitment to reduce carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions is now a matter of legal obligation.
  2. For companies in the wider construction industry, the task is three-fold: de-carbonise their own business; provide people with buildings that enable them to lead more energy efficient lives and provide the infrastructure which enables the supply of clean energy and sustainable practices in other areas of the economy.
