Green Construction Board calls for knowledge database
Sustainable businesses have the opportunity to provide information and data that will shape how the Green Construction Board delivers its plans for low carbon built environment.
Business Minister Mark Prisk, co-chair of the GCB, called on the construction industry to share their low carbon research and development expertise to help create a ‘knowledge database’.
The database will then be used to underpin the key action points that the Board is currently delivering as part of the Low Carbon Construction Action Plan.
Speaking at Ecobuild, Mark Prisk said:
“The aim of our call for evidence is to seek industry intelligence that will help guide is in delivering a low carbon industry of the future.
“The purpose of the Green Construction Board has always been to create a platform for Government and industry to work side by side to help the build environment prepare for the transition to a low carbon economy, while harnessing the business opportunities that support growth along the way.
“What better way to find out what works best for the industry, in relation, technology and performance, than to see evidence from businesses themselves. Ultimately, we want our actions to make the most impact and to best suit the needs of the built environment and a call for evidence will help us to do just that.”
