Net Zero

Building a sustainable future

Join our conversation on the UK’s journey to a net zero built environment

2020 marks the launch of BECG’s campaign to work with the public and private sectors to discuss the UK’s journey to net zero, better explain the action being taken by people and companies working throughout the built environment and to help shape local and national policy.

We started our campaign by publishing the Sustainability Secures Priority in Planning report. The report summarises our work with Savanta ComRes to survey councillors across England to capture their views and perceptions on sustainability within the UK development industry.

Our analysis confirms that sustainability and environmental concerns are now the most important measure for councillors when making planning decisions. The report also shows how housebuilders and developers can navigate through the new political climate, with BECG able to apply our expertise to assist.  

Our net zero campaign will evolve and expand to encompass the built environment more broadly. We look forward to continuing to share our work with you and we will be hosting events and discussions. If you would like to contribute or have any thoughts or questions, please get in touch.
