Summary

The Greater London Authority (GLA) already requires all new homes to achieve a zero carbon target, and several devolved administrations and local authorities, including in Manchester, are considering the standard they should adopt for low carbon housing. This event will explore the options available for meeting ‘nearly zero’ or zero carbon housing targets, and examine case studies that show how to deliver the target in practice.
