We've signed letter in today's @FT restating our commitment to working for low carbon built environment post-Brexit.

The initial impacts of the EU referendum result have already been felt by the construction and property sector, so now more than ever we need to minimise future risk, reduce costs, add value for clients, generate new commercial opportunities and ensure we have the best people working as productively as possible. A sustainable built environment is fundamental to these objectives, and we are committed to collaborating across the industry and with the Government to achieve this.
