The built environment sector is responsible for 40% of the UK’s total emissions1 and can lead in the transition to net zero.

Businesses have a key role to play in the net zero transition and should demonstrate leadership by setting, and delivering against, ambitious climate commitments. This leadership will be crucial for the UK to reach its net zero target and strong corporate commitments will help position the UK as a global leader on climate action, ahead of hosting next year’s UN Climate Conference, COP26.

This site profiles the companies who are already making strong climate commitments. It also provides information on voluntary commitments applicable to the built environment and, through the Climate Leadership Model, sets out a best practice approach for different types of companies owning, occupying or developing buildings.
