The Road to Decarbonisation

With the 5th generation of SCF Construct now live and our 20 contractors on board, it’s time to get down to work and a key focus for us in the coming months is moving forward our decarbonisation initiatives.

For this latest generation of the framework, SCF has contractors that can demonstrate exemplary carbon benchmarking assessment for all builds and we’ve also prioritised carbon retrofit capabilities in line with our industry leading Carbon and Social Value targets.

Remarkably, there is still no consistent ruling across the industry for carbon measurement, so we developed our own SCF baseline assessment in line with the industry, which gives us, our contractors and clients a solid benchmark.  This is now being rolled out by the National Association of Construction Frameworks (NACF) for other public sector frameworks to adopt and we are proud to be paving the way and setting ambitious but also importantly a realistic and achievable baseline, which we hope to see used widely.
