Partnerships and Influence

Reading Time: 1 min

Partnership working is fundamental to our ethos of uniting and engaging a fragmented market, driving sector innovation and championing the enviro-economic benefits of sustainable development.  We are exploring opportunities to partner with other organisations and networks, among them the Institution of Civil Engineers, Town and Country Planning Association, Planning Portal, BRE(BREEAM), Federation of Master Builders, UK Business Group Alliance for Net-Zero, ADEPT, LGA, LABC and Landscape Institute amongst others.  Our objective, to promote the innovation of our members and discuss the tangible solutions that you are implementing right now.  More action, less talk.

Similarly, we are using our influence at Government level, offering up our members as ‘test beds’ to tackle some of the major challenges facing government, both national and local. 

“Using the language of ‘Build Back Better…sustainably’, climate emergency and the green recovery, we have been informing thinking on how to deliver and transition to net-zero carbon development and sustainable growth (and procurement) with DEFRA, One Public Estates, the Crown Estate, Departments for Communities and Local Government and Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,” said Jason Longhurst, Chairman of UKBCSD.

“As an industry we know and understand the complexities facing all sectors, as we work to deliver on the UN’s climate change goals.  Because of the depth and breadth of our membership, we are in a unique position to take a lead role, particularly through our newly formed working groups.”
