For the report, CN spoke to senior managers in the UKs biggest construction businesses. According to the results, 82 per cent of respondents supported the extension of the Scottish Executives policy to England and Wales.
There was also relatively high optimism on the Governments zero-carbon targets. Just over a quarter thought hitting the 2016 target for residential new-build was quite or very likely - almost a third thought the same for the 2019 target for non-domestic buildings.
When asked about the view that zero-carbon targets should be pushed to the background because of the economic situation, responses were divided. While 38 per cent agreed, an equal proportion disagreed.
The report also showed there was industry-wide agreement that climate change is a threat to their business - 64 per cent thought so, although only 6 per cent rated the threat as very strong while more than a third saw it as quite weak.
