UK Net Zero Carbon Buildings Standard coalition launches call for evidence

Verco are proud to be contributing to the development of the UK’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Standard (the NZCBS). Our Managing Director, Dave Worthington along with senior members of the Real Estate team; Robert Cohen and Ben Ross are all contributing time and expertise to working groups that are tackling the complexity and defining the detail behind the standard.

The coalition have just launched a call for evidence, to help inform and guide the development of the Standard.

Once developed, the NZCBS will provide a single agreed definition and methodology for the industry to determine what constitutes a net zero carbon building.

Having established governance and delivery teams, the NZCBS coalition is now calling on UK built environment industry practitioners to supply operational energy and embodied carbon performance data for their buildings. This will support the development of their evidence base over the coming months.

Participants are invited to submit data via the Built Environment Carbon Database. The deadline for submitting data is 16th December 2022.

The NZCBS Technical Steering Group will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 17th November at 9.30am. They’ll be providing a general update on progress on the development of the Standard as well as taking part in an audience Q&A session. Find out more and register to attend.
