The CIOB has responded to the Construction Industry Council's (CIC) Carbon Zero climate action plan for professional institutions.

Eddie Tuttle, Director of Policy, Public Affairs and Research at CIOB, said: "One of the most pressing issues facing society – and, of course, the construction industry – is climate change and the requirement to move towards net zero carbon emissions. CIOB has been playing its part in industry initiatives to help combat climate change, including supporting the Construction Industry Council’s Climate Change Panel and leading on the Competence, Ethics and Advocacy workstream. We were very pleased to be coordinating the excellent work underway in this area, establishing the actions necessary for professional institutions to improve levels of expertise and competency, and create codes of ethics and practice."
