CLC publishes Construct Zero Performance Framework


On 20 July 2021, the Construction Leadership Council (CLC), of which ECA is a key contributing member, published a set of clear targets for the industry to unite behind in its mission to drive carbon out of the sector. Named the Construct Zero Performance Framework, it seeks to provide Government and industry with a comprehensive view at a sector level on progress towards net zero. Measures include tracking the number of domestic retrofits achieved, changes in the amount of non-diesel plant in use and reductions in the amount of energy used to produce key products.

The Performance Framework was developed in consultation with industry, with more than 2,500 comments received from industry to shape the framework. The commitments map to the nine priorities for carbon reduction outlined by the CLC in March 2021. It is considered to be the start of a conversation which will be refined and iterated over time to align with industry and workforce changes.

The headline commitments in the framework are:

Details of each measure are available on the CLC’s Construct Zero web hub. Data will be gathered on a quarterly basis and published as an industry carbon ‘dashboard’.
