Why net zero is important for home builders
The UK government is committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2050. There is a growing expectation that customers and government regulations will require you to reduce your carbon footprint.
The built environment accounts for 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Offering your customers renewable energy options and sustainable building materials can help offset your supply chain emissions. By switching to electric vans you can reduce transport emissions and save money on fuel.
