ICE's Sustainability Knowledge Manager Rob Curd assesses the progress of ICE's collaborative effort to deliver progress towards net-zero.
One of the earliest tasks carried out by the third workstream ‘Transforming the System,’ was to get a better understanding about where and how the biggest emissions of carbon were occurring within infrastructure. This activity was last carried out at scale in 2013’s Infrastructure Carbon Review (ICR) which was well received by industry and set out a common language and narrative of where the carbon was within infrastructure, we therefore decided to update the data used in this report, not only to provide a like for like comparison using the same sources and methodologies, but also to update the figures to give a more complete picture that is available to us using improved data and methodologies that have become available since 2013.
This work was supported by funding from ICEs ICEs Research and Development enabling fund and was carried out by Dr Jannik Giesekam and Maria Manidaki, who was heavily involved in the original ICR. Further support was provided by Tim Chapman, Holly Smith and Chris Landsburgh.
Some of the key findings of this update include:
This data was presented at the Unwin Lecture, where we discussed how the industry has progressed since the original ICR as well as what more needs to be done to reach our net-zero target.

To mark the inauguration of ICE’s new president Rachel Skinner – who is also Chair of The Carbon Project steering group - we have now made this dataset available for all to use. These documents are intended to provide the most accurate estimate on carbon in infrastructure to date and provide a robust baseline for future progress updates.
Download the data here
This data will be hosted on the ICE website and will be freely available for all to download and use as they wish. ICE has also made a pledge to maintain and update the data and will use it to monitor the industries progress at regular intervals. Work has already begun on future iterations incorporating additional improvements and data sources and we encourage members to share any relevant data that they may have by sending it to: [email protected].
Be sure to join incoming ICE President Rachel Skinner's inaugural address on Tuesday 3 November where she will be discussing the importance of carbon emission reduction and the need for urgent actions. Book the event here.
