Definition of Zero Carbon Homes and Non-Domestic Buildings: Consultation

In 2007 CLG launched its policy statement publication, Building a Greener Future, in which it was announced that all new homes were to be zero carbon from 2016 - and that they would consult again on the detailed definition.

On 17 December 2008, CLG launched their consultation process on the definition of zero carbon new homes, based on high energy efficiency, on- or near-site carbon reduction, and allowable solutions for dealing with the remaining emissions. The paper also sets out current Government thinking on zero carbon new non-domestic buildings.
