Construction professionals, who will have a key role to play in delivering net zero, should take five minutes out of their schedules to take part in an important industry survey on the issue, says Infrastructure Intelligence editor Andy Walker.
Infrastructure Intelligence has teamed up with Tarmac to call on industry professionals from across the construction and infrastructure industry to take part in research aimed at providing a snapshot of views and attitudes to carbon reduction and net zero. I'd urge all our readers to take part in this important survey to ensure that they have their say on this crucial issue facing our industry.
This unique piece of research, Clean construction: unlocking net zero, will deliver essential insights from industry decision makers about the key challenges being faced on the journey ahead to net zero. Our readers’ views will be vital in making this research as up to date and as relevant as possible and I’d urge everyone to take part in the survey.
The way new infrastructure is delivered will have a critical role in how the UK achieves the government’s ambitious carbon reduction targets, but less clear is whether the strategies, skills and necessary behaviours are yet in place to seize the net zero opportunity. As part of a data gathering exercise, anyone working across the sector – from clients and contractors to consultants and suppliers – is being invited to take part in a short, five-minute survey to share their views, opinions, and experience.
Against the backdrop of a growing climate emergency, there is a clear opportunity for the industry to understand how the UK’s infrastructure pipeline can be successfully delivered to underpin the transition and ultimate delivery of a net zero society. It's also vital that we as an industry recognise the opportunities and barriers ahead to help create an improved, resilient low carbon, built environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with Tarmac to ask the sector these important questions and assess the industry’s views and understanding of the challenge ahead.
Whether you’re a client delivering one of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects or a supplier providing essential goods and services, we want to hear from you. We’re very grateful to anyone able to give just five minutes of their time to fill out our simple survey and are looking forward to sharing the results and insights in a few weeks’ time.”
Once the survey has closed, Tarmac and Infrastructure Intelligence will be analysing the results and combining it with other data to produce a report highlighting the key findings and outcomes. The report will provide an important snapshot of UK infrastructure, including essential insights into the current market sentiment towards net zero together with commentary and analysis on the steps the sector can take to deliver on its environmental targets.
