Prisk calls for construction firms' input

23/03/2012 11:25:14


A minister has called on the construction industry to come together to pool its knowledge of green/sustainable practice.

The Green Construction Board (GCB) is being chaired by business minister Mark Prisk, and he has called on the industry to share its secrets of low carbon research and development to create a knowledge hub.

The GCB will then feed the input into the key points of the Low Carbon Construction Action Plan, with Prisk saying such evidence was important to delivering a 'low carbon industry of the future'.

He added: "The purpose of the Green Construction Board has always been to create a platform for Government and industry to work side by side to help the built environment prepare for the transition to a low carbon economy, while harnessing the business opportunities that support growth along the way.

"What better way to find out what works best for the industry, in relation technology and performance, than to seek evidence from businesses themselves."
