Industry-leading experts drawn from across the built environment value chain come together to develop the UK’s first shared pathway for adapting to our changing climate.
As the UK faces a potentially record-breaking season of frequent and severe extreme weather, the importance of adapting to the changing climate continues to surge into the most crucial priorities facing our built environment.
Without a robust and common evidence-based pathway to a greater climate resilience, our industry faces more delays that our towns, cities, places and spaces simply cannot afford.
UKGBC’s Climate Resilience Roadmap seeks to establish the urgent priorities, industry wide-targets, and clear metrics that we need to adapt our built environment at speed and scale.
Following the project’s launch in October 2023, a wide range of cross-industry leaders have now joined the project to lend their voices and expertise to the common goal of catalysing more urgent, comprehensive, and cohesive action on climate resilience.
Our partners are drawn from across the built environment’s value chain, ranging from engineering, construction and architecture through to materials experts and academics. All will bring critical perspectives to the Project that will enable our conclusions to reach across the industry and transform the way we work together.
Hannah Giddings, Head of Climate Resilience at UKGBC said: “We are delighted to bring together brilliant and committed colleagues towards the common goal of a more resilient built environment. That our mission has united more than 40 experts from so many different disciplines reflects the reality that none of us can achieve this alone, while greater climate resilience will transform lives and businesses across the UK. I’m grateful to all partners and excited by what we will achieve together.“
Partners have joined the Climate Resilience Roadmap as members of a Steering Group or a Task Group. The Steering Group is a smaller, strategic team of 20+ partners who will focus on the project’s strategic questions, objectives, and recommendations. The Task Group of 25+ partners will be a forward-looking forum that may focus on particular themes, ‘chapters’ or key questions that comprise the entire Roadmap. The two Groups will work closely with one another and will drive towards the same common goal of a powerful, coherent, action-oriented Climate Resilience Roadmap for the built environment.
While the Groups will lead development of the Roadmap, they will also welcome additional consultation from the wider industry and beyond throughout the process. More information on methodology will be published in due course, including how the Climate Resilience Roadmap process will build upon the approaches used to develop UKGBC’s Net Zero Whole Life Carbon Roadmap, which was published at COP26.
