UKGBC has today published a consultation paper inviting feedback on a proposed definition for net zero carbon buildings in the UK. The consultation sets out the initial proposals from the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Task Group which is developing a framework definition in line with the ambitions of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The Redevco Foundation is lead partner in this programme. The Task Group is being facilitated by UKGBC as part of its Advancing Net Zero programme, which is aiming to drive the transition to a net zero carbon built environment.
Other Programme Partners are BAM Construct UK, Berkeley Group, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Hoare Lea and JLL.
UKGBC’s Advancing Net Zero programme forms part of a global campaign led by the World Green Building Council which is calling for all buildings to be net zero carbon by 2050, and all new buildings to achieve this by 2030. Globally, leading businesses and regional authorities are already committing to spearheading this transition, UK signatories to the WorldGBC commitment include: Berkeley Group, Bruntwood, Cundall, Elementa (part of Integral Group), Mayor of London, the Scottish Government and Shaw Contract.
