is the challenge of our time and we are taking action
NHBC is committed to supporting the Government's ambition to achieve net zero carbon by 2050. To this end, we will work with the home building industry to help make the requirements of the Future Homes Standard technically and commercially viable, and ensuring the interests of homeowners are protected. We are also working to deliver positive and lasting change within our own operations to meet the net zero carbon objective ahead of 2050.
Our track record
We have a proven track record of supporting house builders and developers on sustainability and environmental matters. From the Zero Carbon Hub to the ongoing work of the NHBC Foundation, we have led the way with research and practical guidance, solving problems together with the industry and government. Our NHBC Standards also have an important role to play in how they influence construction standards and methods.

Future Homes Standard – let’s work together
Being independent we are uniquely placed to bring house builders, homeowners and government together as a force for good. We must all work together to make real progress on the environmental agenda, delivering on the requirements laid out in the Future Homes Standard.
Our direct environmental impact
We have worked hard to minimise our own direct environmental impact. We are proud of our achievements so far, but we are continuing to do more.
Join us on the journey
We are working on more initiatives and will share details of these as soon as we can. In the meantime, you can join us on this journey. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your ideas on how we and the wider industry can lessen our impact on the environment and move forward with climate change initiatives that will have the greatest impact.
