Sustainability Policy Group
The Sustainability Policy Briefing Group meets quarterly to address issues relating to UK and EU sustainability policies, particularly the development of consistent measurement and reporting of sustainability performance such as codes, guides and standards. In addition, the Group works to promote ‘green’ procurement and the role of manufacturing in delivering sustainable solutions. Other major areas of attention include Environmental Product Declarations, responsible sourcing, rating schemes, the circular economy, waste reduction and Resource Efficiency Action Plans. The Group is the most popular in the CPA, open to all interested members, predominantly mid-level managers to senior directors. Its input is essential to the CPA’s various policy briefings and publication of highly respected reference materials such as “Water Efficiency, the Contribution of Construction Products” and “A Guide to Understanding Embodied Impacts of Construction Products”.
