Headline

Seventeen Stirling Prize winners unite to declare climate emergency

Comment

“This is great news. Now it’s time for the RIBA to take a stand and declare that we are in the middle of a Climate Emergency. The construction industry is the major consumer of the world’s natural resources (approx 50%)..... and the Cement/ Concrete industry is a major part of that and associated CO2e emissions. So all signatories to this noble group have got to get over their love of concrete if we are going to go anywhere near the huge reduction in whole life carbon, let along the ambition for zero carbon/ zero waste targets many of us desire.... A good step forward though - well done”.
