Moving beyond nZEB
Is the Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard as implemented through Part L a sufficient response to the immediate challenge of climate change? What needs to happen to transition to genuinely low carbon circular buildings? IGBC is exploring the next steps in defining Net Zero Carbon and considering the full life cycle of buildings.

But what are the implications for climate and global resources consumption of expanded building programmes and what is the onus to take a leadership role?
