Any body interested in helping a MSc study entitled:

'Investigating the Reasons for the Uptake of Sustainable Initiatives in UK Construction Design Businesses',

then please click the link below:

Your contribution will provide a great snapshot of opinion in this field.

It is 12 questions long and should only take 5 minutes to complete.
Thank you in advance for your time.

Thank you in advance for filling out this questionnaire.

The answers you provide will contribute greatly to my MSc Dissertation research on sustainability in UK construction design businesses.

My main objective of the study is to identify why certain firms adopt sustainable initiatives and why some do not.

It is hoped that highlighting the main opportunities and challenges towards sustainability will aid other firms in making a more informed choice when contemplating integration of sustainable initiatives.

Sustainability refers to a project or initiatives within an organisation.

Dear all, 

Please give your input to improve the market uptake of bio-based products 
The FP7 research project KBBPPS (Knowledge Based Bio-based Products’ Pre-Standardization) carries out pre-normative research on bio-based products that will feed into the work of CEN/TC411 for truly horizontal standards of bio-based products.

One task within this is to analyse which circumstances hamper the development of the bio-based economy.

More information can be found on

For this task, we are conducting a survey that asks concerned industry players for their experience with aspects that are negative for the market uptake of their bio-based products.

It would be very valuable to us to get your opinion on this matter.

Please take a little time to fill out the questionnaire – it is only three questions long! 

The anonymised results will be published within the scope of the project. If you would like to be notified, please indicate your contact details in the survey. Of course, your data and your answers will be treated with highest confidentiality! 

This is your opportunity to contribute to improving the framework of a bio-based economy in Europe! Many thanks for your support! 

Best regards
