With six weeks to go until COP26, engineering alliance Actuate UK has issued a stark message to world leaders gathering in Glasgow, urging them to tackle the climate crisis now “before it is too late”.
A Voice for the Industry
Actuate UK - the engineering services alliance - is the umbrella body for UK engineering services.
It brings together the leading trade, technology and professional bodies within the multi-billion-pound sector: BESA, BSRIA, CIBSE, ECA, FETA, LEIA, SELECT and SNIPEF.
We speak with a single, shared and authoritative voice to affect positive change in the built environment.
School leavers and other young people are being urged to consider engineering careers as the UK employment market enters uncharted territory.
Actuate UK has welcomed recommendations to the Scottish Government to reform the outdated practice of cash retentions and protect sub-contractors from payment abuse and upstream insolvencies. The report from the Short Life Working Group on Retentions in Construction Contracts makes a range of recommendations to improve the payment conditions in both the public and private sector.
