Why data is key to achieve its net-zero objectives

Achieving net-zero has become a top priority for construction companies. As part of a UK government strategy set out last year, all new buildings will be required to operate at net-zero by 2030 – meaning the amount of carbon emissions associated with a building’s usage and construction stages must equal zero or negative.

However, there are some significant hurdles for the industry to overcome before it can achieve this aim. The global built environment is currently responsible for almost 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions and 50% of extracted materials, according to the World Green Building Council.
