Construct Zero – Reduce Your Carbon Footprint With Industrial Polythene

Here at Industrial Polythene, we want to work to create a zero-emissions construction industry. We believe that by providing the right products to the industry, we can work together to solve some of the world’s biggest environmental issues. Sustainable packaging is something we are passionate about and the latest manufacturing technologies mean we can help our customers reduce their carbon footprint.

What is Construct Zero?

Construct Zero (officially known as CO2nstructZero) is the Construction Industry’s zero carbon change programme run by the CLC (Construction Leadership Council). 

Construct Zero was created as a direct response by the construction industry to the UK Government’s  10-point plan for a Green Industrial Revolution. Published in 2020, the plan lays the foundations for the UK to be Net Zero by 2050.

The CLC used the Climate Change Committee's 6th Carbon Budget to form its action plan and establish 9 main priorities such as eliminating 78% of diesel plants from construction sites by 2035. It is this plan by which they’ll measure their progress.

What are the 9 CO2nstructZero priorities?

The 9 CO2nstructZero priorities: 

Transport - 

  1. Drive the shift of zero-emission vehicles & onsite plant in the construction industry.
  2. Optimise Modern Methods of Construction & improved onsite logistics 
  3. Champion developments & infrastructure investments that enable connectivity with low-carbon modes of transport 

Buildings - 

  1. Deliver retrofitting to improve housing stock energy efficiency
  2. Scale up the capability of using low-carbon heat solutions in buildings
  3. Enhance energy performance of new & existing buildings

Construction Activity - 

  1. Implement carbon measurement to support construction projects
  2. Become world leaders in designing out carbon with highly capable designers & construction professionals 
  3. Support the development of low-carbon materials & advance their manufacturing production process & distribution 

Industrial Polythene provides a number of modern, sustainable, eco-friendly packaging solutions which help companies reduce their carbon footprint, which in turn helps the construction industry as a whole in working towards its net zero goals.

How is Industrial Polythene helping the construction industry reduce carbon footprints?
