UKGBC roadmap for climate resilience in UK built environment

The Climate Resilience Roadmap will set metrics to help measure climate resilience, establish urgent priorities and industry-wide targets.

The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) is has developed a roadmap to support achieving a climate resilient built environment by 2050. The evidence-based pathway will map how the built environment should adapt to and be prepared for a changing climate – including protecting people, and the buildings, communities, towns and cities we inhabit, from the impacts.

Having launched at the end of last year, the project aims to address a current lack of climate resilience standards at a national, local or sectoral level . UKGBC say the roadmap will use cutting-edge insights from industry to develop science-driven targets and catalyse urgent action across the built environment, and with government and policymakers.

The new roadmap will be a key resource to enable stakeholders to develop their climate-related risk strategies, targets and actionable plans, aligned with current and future UK reporting requirements such as the TCFD and IFRS standards, UKGBC added.
