Scape wants to be net zero by 2045

The guide, produced in collaboration with McLaughlin & Harvey, Kier and Morgan Sindall, advises local authorities on how they can achieve the UK Green Building Council’s Net Zero Public Building Standard when delivering new build and refurb projects.

Chris Clarke, performance and improvement director at Scape, said: “With the built environment contributing 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions, our new guide creates the UK’s first clear route for local authorities and other parts of the public sector to pursue the greenest standards possible as part of their ongoing investment in local communities.”

Scape is committed to achieving net zero by 2045.
