Climate Change is the top concern for the future of our planet. The construction industry accounts for 10% of the UK carbon emissions and directly influences 47% of all national emissions (NFB 2019). Through OneVoice, the NEE construction industry has pledged to support the North East England Climate Coalition (NEECCo) ambition of ‘Becoming England’s Greenest Region’.
Constructing Excellence North East is working with SmartCarbon to help the region’s construction industry to act on carbon by measuring, reporting and reducing organisations and the industry’s carbon footprint. Companies on the Decarbonising NEE Construction programme will receive discounts.
