Report underlines need for non-domestic carbon plans

Report underlines need for non-domestic carbon plans
Non-domestic buildings will be provided with a timetable for implementing carbon reduction plans, a new report has revealed.

According to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DLCG), non-domestic buildings could cut their emissions to zero, with the costs varying depending on the type of business and the building.

Paul King, chief executive of the UK-GBC, a group of firms which played an important role in the report, revealed that within a decade many company buildings could be more environmentally friendly.

He said: "One of the most valuable things about this report has been the willingness of our members to work together, to work out how we can deliver zero carbon new buildings in around ten years.

"We have already learnt valuable lessons from the zero carbon homes experience, not least that although there are inevitably extra costs, these costs can be minimised through good design," he added.

Meanwhile, Dr Martin Gibson, of Envirowise, has claimed that companies who make energy-efficiency changes to their business, were likely to make long-term cost savings.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18405783-ADNFCR
