Webinar on Net Zero Homes
Event Description

Local authorities have the ability to drive up the sustainability of new homes and residential developments, through considered local plans and ambitious minimums standards. This session will bring together UKGBC guidance reports and current best practice to support local authorities in accelerating their ambition. 

Local authorities are increasingly recognising the role they must play in addressing the climate crisis. Nearly 75% of UK councils and combined authorities have declared climate emergencies and committed to delivering net zero carbon homes by 2050 or before. Despite the lack of clear national policy, many local and combined authorities have forged ahead by using planning as a lever to drive up the carbon performance of new homes, improve climate resilience, increase biodiversity and create places that support their communities’ wellbeing. 

Join this session to find out more about current best practice, findings of the UKGBC report Building the Case for Net Zero: A case study for low-rise residential developments, and hear insights from our Policy team on current and future legislation.
