We’re driving the decarbonisation of Britain

We’ve been named a Business Champion for the Construct Zero Performance Framework, the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) initiative to ensure construction and facilities management businesses play a bigger role in helping decarbonise Britain’s built environment. Our appointment as a Business Champion is testament to our sustainability leadership and commitment to support the decarbonisation of Britain by using our expertise to help other businesses achieve their net zero targets

The Construct Zero Performance Framework consists of a set of commitments the Business Champions so we can help our customers cut carbon emissions, such as helping retrofit buildings to increase their energy efficiency and installing electric vehicle (EV) charge points to support the nation’s switch to EVs. As part of the initiative, the CLC will collect data to track the progress towards the commitments. This will also be used to encourage businesses to compare how they stack up to the rest of the construction and facilities management sector and create healthy competition in the drive to decarbonise Britain.

Kath Fontana, Managing Director of Projects said:
“We’re thrilled to have been appointed Business Champion for the Construct Zero initiative. Mitie is committed to fighting climate change by leading the industry in sustainability and sharing our expertise so that more businesses can reduce their environmental impact too. This recognition from the CLC demonstrates that we’re delivering on this commitment.”
