Hub Statement on Zero Carbon Policy Announcement

Since its creation in 2008, the Zero Carbon Hub has worked alongside industry on a number of major policy developments across the UK house building sector.

The government's recent statement on zero carbon homes policy makes significant changes to targets and timelines. However, our continuing focus for this year is to improve industry skills and knowledge of low energy building at a time when previous changes to Building Regulations are continuing to bed in.
