CLC and ITN announce new show on achieving net zero carbon in the construction industry

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has teamed up with ITN Productions Industry News for a new programme called ‘Building a Greener Britain’, as part of its contribution to deliver a zero-carbon built environment at COP26.


The show, anchored by Clare Nasir, will explore the cutting-edge sustainable methods the sector is adopting, featuring interviews with industry experts and news items looking at how the construction sector is going ‘green’.

It is presented through the lens of the CLC’s Construct Zero programme, a campaign which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry in response to the climate emergency. 

The full video will be premiered at 9:30am on Thursday, 11th November, on the COP26 YouTube channel.

Andy Mitchell, co-chair of CLC, said: “The CLC brings together representatives from across the construction sector, from sole traders to major contractors.

“In this video, which will launch at COP26, we're addressing the biggest challenge — climate change. 

“Construct Zero sets out an action plan and headline metrics against which the construction industry can collectively measure and monitor its progress to net zero on a quarterly basis. 

“We are also showcasing business champions in our sector who are doing great work in reducing carbon emissions.”

Nina Harrison-Bell, head of ITN Productions Industry News said: “We are delighted launch our programme with CLC that explores the innovative range of new methods and initiatives the construction industry is introducing and developing as it makes the move towards a net zero future. 

“We hope the content will be used to support the CLC’s Construct Zero programme and show the immediate need for action.”
