Task Group formed to identify zero-carbon solutions

John Lewis, Whitbread and Saint Gobain are among the big businesses that have formed a new Task Group to help inform the upcoming zero-carbon building standards in the UK. Launched earlier today (3 June), the new Task Group has been convened by the UK Green Building Council which wants to explore how the ‘Allowable Solutions’ market can deliver high-value carbon saving solutions in the built environment. “The zero-carbon policies for both new homes and non-domestic buildings are vital for decarbonising our building stock and meeting the UK’s climate change targets,” explained UK Green Building Council chief executive Julie Hirigoyen. “Although the policy for non-domestic buildings remains under-developed, UK-GBC members are already pushing ahead. “The overwhelming response we have had to this Task Group proves how many of our members are keen to start designing and delivering zero-carbon new buildings, in view of the clear business benefits.”
