REPORT HELPS EMPLOYERS IDENTIFY GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES
An easy-to-follow guide to help businesses take advantage of
opportunities in the move to low and zero carbon buildings and
homes is on offer from SummitSkills, the sector skills council for
the building services engineering (BSE) sector.
SummitSkills commissioned the report, Low Carbon Buildings
and Homes: Skills and Opportunities, from the Zero Carbon Hub
as a way to help businesses get to grips with current and emerging
legislation and regulations affecting the growing 'green'
The document also summarises the policies and initiatives that
UK-wide government, including the devolved administrations of
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, have put in place to
encourage the move to low-carbon buildings.
Keith Marshall, chief executive of SummitSkills, said: 'We
wanted to produce a guide that brought together everything
businesses need to know, which would enable them to spot the
opportunities for growth. With a recent BIS report showing that the
"green" sector is growing much more strongly than the overall UK
economy, now is the time for employers to plan ahead to maximise
their future success.'
