Groups / Climate Change


How society responds to the climate challenge is the biggest question of our time.

The Government has committed the UK to cutting greenhouse emissions to net zero and in doing so is playing its part in capping global heating at 1.5 degrees, thus mitigating the worst effects of climate change.

More than this however, EIC members have a key role to play in creating holistic and fully sustainable solutions which ensure the built environment and natural environment can work in true harmony.

Collaboration and sharing innovation in the widest possible sense will help us to creatively respond to the challenge. This is also why the group welcomes those working in the built environment from the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE).

The taskforce champions a practical approach to climate change, sustainability and society’s journey to Net Zero, shaping EIC’s interactions with policymakers, supporting evidence-based thought-leadership, and ensuring our industry is seen as part of the solution to our climate crisis.

The taskforce is chaired by Sarah Prichard of Buro Happold.

The group meets quarterly.
