Peace calls for unity

Liz Peace, the British Property Federation's chief executive, has called for industry, Government departments and regulators to unite to meet green targets and reduce carbon emissions.

Speaking at the Low Carbon World conference, in
London, Peace called on ministers to focus on output based targets, backed with fiscal incentives, supported by clear evidence of the impacts of such moves.

The BPF believes a Government supported measurement and reporting framework would ensure joined up thinking across the board, avoiding a situation where a glut of initiatives form a barrier to meeting targets.

Peace believes measurement and
benchmarking schemes run by the likes of the Investment Property Databank (IPD), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Upstream and the Building Research Establishment (incorporating BREAAM, which is their Environmental Audit Method) provide a genuine platform on which to build.
