Net Zero Developer Network

For progressive private sector housing developers

About the Network

Building upon the successes of the Vanguard and Pathfinder networks, which now total over 30 forward-thinking local authorities and housing associations, GHA has launched a new network for progressive developers and housebuilders that are striving to deliver quality, net zero housing.

As with the GHA’s other networks, one of the main aims of the new Net Zero Developer Network (NZDN) will be to share learning and best practice, and create new guidance and case studies to facilitate the adoption of enhanced sustainability, quality, health and performance standards for new housing developments.
