As the trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry, FASET aims to keep right up to date with the latest news from around the construction industry. We are pleased to share the following story from the Construction Leadership Council about Balfour Beatty, the multinational infrastructure group.
Balfour Beatty has launched its ‘Towards Zero Carbon Construction Site‘ and supporting materials. The company has harnessed the spirit of innovation and demonstrated the art of the possible for the Edinburgh Biomes project at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE).
Commenting on Balfour Beatty’s innovative initiative, Kwasi Kwarteng Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said: “Balfour Beatty’s ‘Towards Zero Carbon Construction Site’ is an outstanding example of the level of ambition needed to achieve our climate goals.
“It’s inspiring to see a UK business raising the bar for net zero construction sites, helping us all to build back greener.”
Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “Balfour Beatty set out its vision for the construction site of the future in 2017. But with the growing importance of the climate change emergency, we know we need to take decisive action now.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of this critical movement; leading the way in making the UK a world leader in carbon reduction and supporting our industry in delivering the infrastructure for a Net Zero world.”
