UK Green Building Council tells architects to get their house in order

The UK Green Building Council's (UK-GBC's) report on measuring and reporting says that the best route to sustainability is for practices to measure their own environmental impact and act on the findings.

This is the main message of its third task group report, issued on 9 July by the measuring and reporting task group (M&RTG).

The UK-GBC says the route to more sustainable business practice begins with measuring the impact of one’s own organisation. Only then should a company examine the impact of business operations. This may sound straightforward, but a survey conducted as part of the M&RTG work reveals that surprisingly few organisations have started to measure their own carbon footprint, much less the social and economic factors relating to sustainability.
