Video – The threat from the embodied carbon lobby

The issue of embedded carbon – the carbon emitted when building materials are made – is potentially being used to drive political thinking and possibly even legislation.

Such a move could have a huge and damaging effect upon the UK demolition industry.

What is “enough” demolition experience…?

A demolition veteran on LinkedIn this morning posted that he had been speaking to someone that was considering applying for a Demolition Supervisor competence card, despite the fact that they had just three years’ demolition experience.

That single post sparked a lot of debate, with the vast majority agreeing that three years was not sufficient whilst accepting that this pointed to a wider issue within the industry.

So, based on that post and upon the popularity of our last survey, we decided to put it to the public/industry vote.
