Sustainability & Environment
Globally, the built environment generates 30% of total greenhouse gas emissions and 40% of energy use. Construction uses 32% of the world’s natural resources. Constructing a carbon free world and improving resource efficiency in our built environment is crucial to combat global environmental challenges.
The Sustainability & Environment Special Interest Group (SIG) will provide a forum for industry experts to discuss sustainability solutions. The group aims to raise the profile of innovative ideas and highlight opportunities for improvement within the sector.
Expert members meet quarterly to share ideas; provide expert input into the CIOB’s policy and external engagement work; and guide CIOB’s educational activity.
This group is actively recruiting members. The first meeting of the SIG will be mid-January 2018 (date to be confirmed). This meeting will discuss and confirm the Terms of Reference and establish the initial schemes of work and research.
