ZERO is building a global community that raises awareness, shares knowledge and empowers its members to meet our vision of a zero carbon construction industry.

ZERO is our answer to construction’s big 5 billion tonnes of CO2 per year problem. As a global community of professionals, we have a common goal to make construction a zero carbon industry. We want to work with more than just leaders and decision makers because we are all responsible to answer the challenge and to support those who have to make decisions on change. We share these goals across a global network of empowered activators who share our passion for climate protection and to keep the earth habitable for generations to come.

Our Mission

Currently, construction is responsible for 12% of global emissions and existing buildings 28%. This must change, because the built environment is one of the world’s biggest polluters and impactors to the climate crisis while hiding in plain sight.

We, at ZERO, want to change this. It is a bold goal that we’re ready to face by raising awareness through a global community by sharing knowledge and empowering our members. Activating our members to make the change that is needed to keep the world habitable for all.

All income ZERO receives is invested back into driving ZERO’s global mission. The core team, ZERO next and Ambassadors are all volunteers.

I invite everyone to join us in humanity’s race to carbon zero. This race can only be won if we mobilise as communities and experts, without boundaries, to share our experiences and support each other.

Playbook of knowledge

The ZERO Playbook is plain language tool to help us decarbonise construction. No matter what role you have in construction industry your actions can help reduce carbon emissions. The path to complete decarbonisation of our industry is complex, which is why the ZERO Playbook sets out a series of actions that breakdown the path into smaller steps that we can all take together.

The future is watching.

Join ZERO and make it proud.
