UK Net Zero Carbon Building Standard – Project Update and Call for Evidence/
Date:17 November, 2022
The UK Net Zero Carbon Building Standard is being developed to verifying UK buildings as net zero carbon. Leading industry organisations BBP, BRE, the Carbon Trust, CIBSE, IStructE, LETI, RIBA, RICS, and UKGBC have joined forces to champion this initiative.
Whilst significant progress has been made in defining what ‘net zero’ means for buildings in the UK, a process of market analysis showed a clear demand for a single, agreed methodology. The UK Net Zero Carbon Buildings Standard will enable industry to robustly prove their built assets are net zero carbon and in line with our nation’s climate targets.
This webinar session will provide an update on the work being undertaken around developing the Standard, and will include further details on the NZCBS call for evidence to submit data to support the next phase of the project.
Call for Evidence: We are calling on UK built environment industry practitioners to share embodied carbon and in-use operational energy performance data for their buildings. To develop the Standard, benchmarks will be agreed for the operational energy usage and embodied carbon performance levels today, and limits and targets will be set out for future years based on the industry’s required decarbonisation trajectory. To do this, the project is seeking case study data from the real estate and built environment industry. To find out more about the types of evidence the project required, or to submit data, please see www.NZCBuildings.co.uk.
If tickets are sold out please join the waitlist and join our mailing list at www.NZCBuildings.co.uk . We will send a recording to those on the waitlist and mailing list.
