Peak named as Net Zero Champion to drive carbon out of the construction industry

By Peak on July 12, 2021

Peak is proud to have been named as one of 12 'CO2nstructZero Business Champions' by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC).

Original press release issued by CLC in June 2021.

Leaders from a wide spectrum of UK construction businesses have stepped up to drive carbon out of the industry.

Today the Construction Leadership Council confirms a stellar line up of businesses including major contractors and global consultants, top manufacturers and products firms, as well as specialist distributors and quantity surveyors that have committed to share their experience as they plan to hit Net Zero. 

12 organizations are confirmed today as a new wave of CO2nstructZero Business Champions. They will work alongside the CLC and other major industry bodies to share innovations and best practice, acting as promotors and role models to support the industry’s move to Net Zero Carbon. The 12 organizations are: 

  • Adair    
  • Atkins  
  • Cast     
  • CEF     
  • Costain            
  • Faithful + Gould            
  • Ibstock Plc      
  • Imtech
  • IStructE           
  • Knights Brown
  • Peak
  • Wavin

CO2nstructZero is the Construction Leadership Council’s campaign to bring the whole sector together in a joint effort to meet the UK’s Net Zero ambitions.

As Business Champions, each organization has made a commitment that they will share tangible evidence of their net zero carbon plans against the nine CO2nstructZero priorities, contribute to the CO2nstructZero industry reporting process and work together to support companies in the sector to develop their own plans.

We all know that tackling carbon will be the single biggest challenge our sector faces over the coming decade. To advance as an industry, we need to learn from those who are leading the way. I am delighted that we have such strong Champions coming on board, providing guidance for companies across UK construction on how they can drive out carbon.
