The Greening the Industry Group incorporates and expands upon the existing work being undertaken by the Sustainable Construction Task Group (SCTG) of the Strategic Forum for Construction. The Group has existing subgroups with active projects working on targets for carbon, water and waste from the 2008 joint government and industry Strategy for Sustainable Construction.
The Group’s scope and priorities have been on delivering the targets from the Strategy for Sustainable Construction. This has resulted in a body of work that has put in place methodologies for measuring targets, 2008 baselines, action plans, annual progress reports against targets and increasingly dissemination of best practice. The targets conclude in 2012 and the Subgroups, which are actively supported, are now discussing what the next set of priorities should be, guided by the actions within the Low Carbon Construction Action Plan.
