As part of the government’s aim for the United Kingdom to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, all new buildings are required to be net zero carbon by 2030. The construction and building sector has the mission of measuring, reducing, and offsetting carbon emissions in the industry. Then by 2050, all existing buildings in the UK will be net zero carbon too.
This undertaking, in order to combat global climate change, is split into two key phases: the construction phase and then the operational phase. In this blog, we will focus on the operational phase of achieving net-zero carbon.
