Home News CLC and ITN team up to showcase ‘Building a Greener Britain’

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has linked up with ITN Productions Industry News to reveal ‘Building a Greener Britain’, a programme featuring construction’s contribution to deliver a zero-carbon built environment at COP26.

The partnership programme explores the cutting edge sustainable methods the construction sector is adopting. The film is presented through the lens of the CLC’s industry-change Construct Zero programme, which is the campaign to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry, in response to the climate emergency.

Anchored by presenter Clare Nasir, Building A Greener Britain, features interviews with industry experts and informative news items looking at how the construction sector is going ‘green’. The full video will be premiered at 9:30am, Thursday 11 November, on the COP26 YouTube channel.

Andy Mitchell CBE, Co-Chair, CLC, said: “The Construction Leadership Council brings together representatives from across the construction sector, from sole traders to major contractors and in this video, that will launch at COP26, we’re addressing the biggest challenge which is climate change. Construct Zero sets out an action plan and headline metrics against which the construction industry can collectively measure and monitor its progress to net zero on a quarterly basis. We are also showcasing business champions in our sector who are doing great work in reducing carbon emissions”

Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of ITN Productions Industry News said: “We are delighted launch our programme with CLC that explores the innovative range of new methods and initiatives the construction industry is introducing and developing as it makes the move towards a net zero future. We hope the content will be used to support the CLC’s Construct Zero programme and show the immediate need for action.”
