Is the demand for Net Zero the driver needed to deliver against the skills

05 Oct 2021
Sustainability Hub

The UK needs a highly skilled workforce to decarbonise our buildings to meet its Net Zero target and tackle climate change. Standards have also been raised post-Grenfell. There is already a skills gap and low compliance with existing standards. This could get worse as standards tighten, from employers endorsing staff to minimum 

levels of education, and engineers need high competencies to apply their skills in new situations – this is the same across all areas of construction. 

Is meeting net zero too big a culture change for construction to meet?
