CIOB takes action on carbon

21 June 2011

In an ever-growing body of guidance and advice about carbon, understanding what can be done to make a difference is one of the biggest challenges facing the construction industry. That is why the Chartered Institute of Building has launched its online Carbon Action 2050 plan for the built environment.

The Institute’s Carbon Action 2050 plan is a free interactive online tool that provides key guidance on every facet of a building’s lifecycle from design through construction and beyond. The portal has been developed over the last twelve months by CIOB members who work in design, building control, education, project management, facilities management, conservation and sustainability. The overall aim is to focus on innovation and best practice that will make an immediate difference.

As part of the plan the CIOB has committed to report and manage its own carbon emissions by signing up to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standard.
