The Bathroom Manufacturers Association has become a CO2nstruct Zero Business Partner.
By committing to the Construction Leadership Council’s national industry change programme, CO2nstruct Zero, BMA has pledged to play its part in reducing carbon in all parts of the construction sector.
The built environment contributes around 43% of the UK’s total carbon footprint, and radical change is needed to transform the sector and meet net zero by 2050.
As a Business Partner, the BMA is supportive of CO2nstructZero and can demonstrate commitment and actions to contribute to the national net zero target, hosting events, communicating with members, and developing the change programme.
BMA Chief Executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “We are already seeing tremendous changes in our sector, and to recognise this we launched the inaugural BMA Sustainability Awards this year, encouraging more transformation among our members.
“Beyond this, we are working with colleagues across the construction sector to make sure there is open dialogue and collaboration.
“The net zero challenge will redefine how we do business, it’s the biggest test we face and it’s crucial we play our part.”
BMA will regularly update members on CO2nstruct Zero developments and will encourage them to become business partners and champions.
Andy Mitchell, Co-chair Construction Leadership Council, said: “I welcome the addition of the Bathroom Manufacturers Association as one of the Construction Leadership Council’s newest Business Partners, supporting the CLC with CO2nstruct Zero and encouraging their members to align with its nine priorities.”
