Ministers Launch Sustainable Construction Inquiry

16th October, 2012

The All Party Parliamentary Group for Excellence in the Built Environment (APPG for EBE) is launching an inquiry into sustainable construction and the Green Deal, and is calling for evidence from industry.

The group wants companies, organisations and individuals in the sector to submit evidence and feedback on green construction and policies, covering:

• Evidence of best practice of sustainable construction in the built environment – and how it can be repeated
• Barriers to sustainable construction – what is holding the industry back and how this could be improved
• Progress on sustainable homes – is there too much too fast?
• The green deal – is the policy the right one? What can be done to ensure take up?

Sitting on the APPG for EBE commission of inquiry are members of both Houses of Parliament, senior construction professionals and key influencers and decision makers. This will be the group’s second report, following A Better Deal for Public Building.

The closing date for evidence submissions is 30 November 2012. The commission will hold sessions in January to March 2013 to invite selected organisations to present oral evidence in support of their submissions. The inquiry’s findings will be published before the parliamentary recess in early summer 2013.

The Construction Industry Council acts as secretariat to the group. To make a submission or for further information, contact
