UK-GBC Task Group seeks to define zero carbon for non domestic buildings | UK Green Building Council

 

The UK Green Building Council is launching a new Task Group to help define and build support for an ambitious definition of zero carbon for non domestic buildings that works for industry. 

The Zero Carbon Non Domestic Task Group will be made up of the following UK-GBC members:

Sarah Cary, British Land (Chair)

Tessa Hurstwyn, Zero Carbon Hub

Dan Jestico, Hilson Moran

Marco Marijewycz, E.ON

Dave Worthington, Verco

David Clark, Cundall

Stephen Richardson, Sainsbury’s

Tom Taylor, BRE

John Davies, Derwent London

Mark Allen, Saint-Gobain

Rokia Raslan, UCL

Terry Clarke, Segro

Emma Hines, Lafarge Tarmac

Simon Cox, Prologis

Sylvie Sasaki, M&S

The Task Group will focus on three key areas:

1) The business case for action – building on the BIS Construction Sector Industrial Strategy to establish the economic benefits to UK plc of delivering zero carbon non domestic buildings, as well as the costs of uncertainty.

2) The technical detail of the zero carbon definition – including metrics, the Allowable Solutions framework, the issue of unregulated energy and the relationship of zero carbon to the EU’s ‘nearly zero energy buildings’ 2020 policy.

3) The institutional structure/governance to oversee the implementation and delivery of zero carbon for non domestic buildings.
