The UK government has committed itself to a legally binding target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The building engineering sector will be crucial in delivering the practical steps needed to turn this vision into reality, according to the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA).
The confusion caused by the ongoing Brexit saga has done considerable damage to key government strategies. However, BESA President Tim Hopkinson* believes there will be much for the building services sector to aim for once politicians get their eyes back on the ball.
Air pollution is blamed for 40,000 premature deaths in the UK every year and almost half a million across Europe. It costs our economy upwards of £20 billion a year, largely due to the additional burden on the NHS.
The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) says a ‘perfect storm’ is brewing that will radically alter the shape of training delivery and competence assessment across the UK building services sector.
