'Have Your Say' Consultation
An appropriate level of Carbon Compliance

The Zero Carbon Hub has announced a series of industry 'Have Your Say' consultation events to consider details of the Carbon Compliance element of the definition of zero carbon for new homes.

Zero Carbon Hub Logo The 'Have Your Say' consultation events provide opportunities for the industry to express views, discuss implications of the zero carbon policy and ultimately influence final decisions on where the level of Carbon Compliance (the level of carbon emissions allowable from a home) should be set.  Feedback from the consultation events will inform the final recommendations that are put forward to the Housing Minister at the end of the year.

These interactive events, open to all those interested in how homes will be built from 2016, will be held in: 

  • Manchester (30 November)
  • London (01 December)
  • Milton Keynes (02 December)

  • Securing evidence on Carbon Compliance - technical, commercial and policy
  • What the Task Group thought was influential in informing a Carbon Compliance Standard
  • Your view on what is important in setting a Carbon Compliance Standard (including opinion board feedback)
  • Your view on the zone of Carbon Compliance that might be practical
  • Summary panel review
  • Networking

The events will be facilitated by the Zero Carbon Hub and, throughout the event, delegates will be able to use electronic voting to register their own views confidentially.


These events can qualify for CPD. Please ask a member of the Hub reception team for a certificate on the day.
