International Cost Management Standard (ICMS) 3 has recently been published by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and will contribute positively to efforts to decarbonise the construction sector in the most cost-effective way. Through ICMS 3, professionals will, for the first time, be empowered to deliver a globally consistent method for carbon life cycle reporting across construction projects, from buildings and bridges to ports and offshore structures.
Globally agreed by 49 prominent professional bodies as part of the ICMS Coalition, RICS has collaborated to develop and raise the standard of construction carbon and cost management to the public advantage. The solution will support sustainable investment strategies by bringing much needed transparency and cross-border comparability of embodied and operational carbon across the life cycle of construction projects.
The UK, Welsh and Scottish Governments have asked HSE and the Environment Agency to prepare a regulatory management options analysis (RMOA) for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This RMOA will investigate the risks posed by PFAS and recommend the best approach to protect human health and the environment from any identified risks. This call for evidence aims to gather information and evidence that will support HSE and the Environment Agency with the preparation of the RMOA. They are interested in all aspects of the manufacture, import, hazard profile, use and exposure; these include environmental fate, waste and its disposal requirements, recycling opportunities for these substances and products that contain these substances, and any legislation and standards that apply, including product-specific legislation and standards.
