BEAMA has launched a new report calling for urgent action from government to deliver on the UK's 2050 net-zero carbon emissions target.
Net-Zero By Design outlines areas where BEAMA believes ambition is lacking and there is a need for urgent action – whether that’s regulation, policy, standards or market design and incentives.
It also includes a joint letter signed from BEAMA and 24 member organisations which have committed to meeting the 2050 net-zero target.

Speaking at a launch event held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London yesterday, Julian Critchlow, Director General, Energy Transformation and Clean Growth at Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, said: "The Industrial Revolution saw an unparalleled level of investment in new sectors, and it drove growth for the next hundred or so years.
"Net-zero represents a similar scale of opportunity and we look forward to the continued collaboration between government and BEAMA to drive the changes we need to see, as highlighted in the Net-Zero By Design report."
