GPH Builders Merchants, John A Stephens Ltd, Northstone Group and SIG Trading Ltd were amongst the eight companies whose proposals were assessed and approved by the CO2nstruct Zero programme team.

CO2nstruct Zero is a Construction Leadership Council (CLC) initiative that brings together organisations that are demonstrating leadership in relation to carbon reduction, sharing their best practice with others across the UK construction sector and providing a set of metrics that enables the sector to collectively measure its progress to Net Zero.

Since its launch last spring, more than 60 Business Champions – including 24 BMF member companies – have committed to targeted carbon reduction and to provide details of how they are achieving this to help others on their journey.

“There has never been greater attention on climate change and carbon reduction and everyone involved in the built environment has a huge role to play,” said John Newcomb, BMF chief executive officer. “CO2nstruct Zero has provided a standard for the whole industry to get behind and I am delighted that BMF members are continuing to demonstrate their commitment to the programme.”

The CLC runs an ongoing monthly application programme for Zero Carbon Business Champion status.
