In the recent years we have seen a lot of technological advancements across all industries that were made for the sake of reducing our carbon footprint and the efforts to bypass the demand for scarce resources. The UK’s net zero targets for 2050 has created a much needed sense of urgency for companies to reconsider and adjust accordingly to meet these targets.
Research indicates that the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 were 51% below 1990 levels, according to new Carbon Brief analysis. This means the UK is now halfway to meeting its target of “net-zero” emissions by 2050.
The milestone was reached after a record-breaking 11% fall in greenhouse gas emissions in 2020, largely due to the coronavirus pandemic. Emissions are likely to rebound this year or next as the economy recovers. The nature of the decline in 2020 foreshadows how challenging it will be for the UK to eliminate its remaining emissions.
Statistics show that as much as 30% of all building materials delivered to a construction site can end up in waste? As facade specialists, we fully realise the gravity of these figures and understand that we have a responsibility in reducing them.
At RFL Facades, we are committed to promoting sustainability – not just within our own organisation but also with our supply chain, our on-site operations, and the local environment and communities.
