Net-zero means a building uses less energy than it generates, combining energy-efficient construction with on-site renewable energy in the form of solar, wind or geothermal.
The aim set by the Paris agreement is that by 2050 all buildings must be net-zero, we have a long way to go!
“The fact that the construction, operation and maintenance of the built environment account for 45% of total UK carbon emissions is seared into our collective consciousness. Worse still, 32% of landfill waste comes from the construction and demolition of buildings and 13% of products delivered to site are sent directly to the landfill without having even being used.”
We hope we can work to a net-zero future by working together with all the moving parts in construction.
Do you consider the environmental impact of the products you buy?
