The Carbon Project

Infrastructure in the UK is responsible for more than half of the UK’s total carbon emissions. The Institution of Civil Engineers is taking responsibility and action.

ICE's Carbon Project provides the engineering community with the information needed to understand the net zero challenge, and to meaningfully contribute to reaching the UK’s net zero goal.

An industry-wide initiative, ICE's Carbon Project brings together leaders and experts from across the supply chain to tackle some of the challenges that are slowing progress towards net zero.

It represents the start of a long-term programme of collaborative work, which will seek to share knowledge and best practice on delivering low-carbon solutions across the industry.

The work has been driven by a steering group of industry leaders, chaired by ICE President Rachel Skinner and focused on three workstreams where ICE can make an immediate impact and provide focus for our activities before, during and after COP26. They are:

ICE's State of the Nation 2020: Infrastructure and the 2050 net-zero target examines the contribution of the UK’s infrastructure systems in achieving net-zero by 2050. Specifically, the report sets out a range of recommendations for overcoming the seven policy obstacles that the Committee on Climate Change identified in its advice to government on what is required to meet the net-zero target.

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is a professional membership body that government and industry listen to while providing unrivalled support to our 95,000 civil engineer members.
