RBG commit to Climate Group’s SteelZero and ConcreteZero Initiatives
We have grown our commitment to industrial decarbonisation by joining Climate Group‘s SteelZero initiative, alongside our pledge to ConcreteZero back in October 2022.
SteelZero members pledge to use 50% low-emission steel by 2030, which sets a clear pathway to using 100% net zero steel by 2050. Our prior commitment to ConcreteZero is our promise to use 30% low-emission concrete by 2025 and 50% by 2030, with a long-term target of using 100% net zero concrete by 2050. We are excited to be able to influence the design and use of concrete and steel across a wide range of built environment projects.
David Seel, Managing Director West (UK, MENA & USA) at RBG, said “As a global company, Robert Bird Group is proud to be part of a worldwide organisation aiming to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. SteelZero is a fantastic platform that brings together a variety of passionate and focused companies from the construction industry. As designers, we understand our position in influencing the embodied carbon within structures and SteelZero is key to bringing all of these influencers together and promoting collaborative sharing of information, whilst defining the responsibilities of each sector.”
