The intent of the Sustainability Champion role is to monitor and report on the project’s progress towards the relevant BREEAM target(s), over the course of the stated RIBA stages, in order to minimise the risks of possible non-compliance with the agreed BREEAM targets. To do this the Sustainability Champion should:
- Ideally be site-based, or visit the site regularly and be authorised to carry out inspection and monitoring of the works relevant to their role
- Monitor site activities with an appropriate level of frequency
- Report regularly to the principal contractor and attend relevant project team meetings, identifying potential areas of non-compliance and recommending actions to mitigate these.
