We all want a sustainable Britain. We all want to maintain and enhance the development industry’s contribution to national economic growth. UKBCSD exists to engage directly with the Government to showcase WHY and HOW the innovative solutions produced and advocated by its members and industry partners, can deliver this. UKBCSD champions the enviro-economic benefits of sustainable development. We are the voice of the sector, for the sector.

The voice of the sector, for the sector

UKBCSD brings together partners from industry, academia and from across the political spectrum, to shape the UK policy voice for sustainable development. We are here to unite and engage a fragmented market, driving sector innovation and brokering opportunities for real business growth and economic prosperity.

What do we mean by sustainable development?

It isn’t easy to be truly ‘sustainable’. The perception is one of financial risk, of hampered growth, of stifled enterprise. Business and industry must be given every opportunity to flourish and prosper, while achieving the UK’s commitments internationally on climate change and nationally, for economic growth. This means enabling the disruptive technologies of today to enhance the quality of people’s lives and the utility of the places designed for tomorrow. This is what we mean by sustainable development.
