Zero Carbon Compendium

Who's doing what in housing worldwide

MORE OPTIONS

Welcome

This website aims to create a better understanding of the issues surrounding the achievement and delivery of zero carbon housing, improve the quality of the debate, and set out a basis for better international comparisons and collaboration.

We have clearly set out comparable data across an interesting set of case studies, perhaps highlighting the need for a harmony of approach with regards to assessing building performance, and providing the start for a more detailed evaluation of specific criteria related to energy and emissions on an international level.
