Net-zero ‘Business Champion’ status for Keltbray
Demolition firm among first 14 companies across UK construction supply chain to join CO2nstructZero initiative
EARLIER this year champions across the wide construction industry came together to declare their commitment to supporting CO2nstructZero – a nine-point action plan to reduce carbon emissions and help the construction industry to play its part in delivering the Government’s objective of net zero for the whole economy by 2050.
Keltbray, specialists in construction, demolition, decommissioning and remediation services, were among the first 14 companies selected by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) as a Business Champion and one that demonstrated a commitment to the sector’s drive towards reducing carbon emissions in the delivery and operation of the built environment.
The CO2nstructZero initiative also means companies with ‘Business Champion’ status can be role models in the industry change programme and collaborate with other key players in the sector to help tackle climate change.
Kiro Tamer, group energy manager at Keltbray, commented: ‘We have set the target of achieving net zero by 2050 and made a commitment to support our clients to achieve their own net zero targets.
‘Collaboration is key in achieving real change and the whole sector must work together to ensure we transform how we deliver the built environment. It’s an honour to be selected as a CO2nstruct Zero Business Champion and we look forward to working closely with the CLC and other major industry bodies in the journey to net zero.’
