Low carbon Routemap unveiledJune 2013

The Green Construction Board has launched a Low Carbon Routemap, a visual tool enabling stakeholders to understand the policies, actions and key decision points required to achieve the UK Government target of 80 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

The Routemap sets out actions, and proposes key performance indicators that can be used to deliver and measure progress in meeting the 2050 target.

The Routemap covers both infrastructure and buildings sectors, and addresses segments of operational and capital (embodied) carbon emissions.

The emissions covered include emissions from regulated energy use, operational emissions from infrastructure (such as outdoor lighting) and emissions arising from the production and manufacture of materials, consultancy activities, and on-site activities for the construction and demolition of buildings and infrastructure.
