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