Irish Green Building Council is exploring the next steps through its conference this year in defining Net Zero Carbon  considering the full life cycle of buildings.

Moving beyond nZEB.

“Our house is on fire! I want you to panic”- Greta Thunberg – 16-year-old Climate Activist

Is the  Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard as implemented through Part L a sufficient response to the immediate challenge of climate change? Does it go far enough? How do cities respond and how can communicating their sustainability drive international inward investment.

What needs to happen to transition to genuinely low carbon circular buildings?

IGBC is exploring the next steps through its conference this year in defining Net Zero Carbon  considering the full life cycle of buildings.

The National development plan will see much of Ireland’s future growth concentrated in Cork. But what are the implications for climate and global resources consumption when rich countries like Ireland expand their building programmes and what is the onus to take a leadership role? Whilst nZEB is a good start does Ireland also need to take ownership of the massive ‘carbon burp’ resulting from the National Development Plan and drive innovation for genuinely low carbon buildings.

nZEB is now in force so what’s next? Green Building Cork explores what the next iteration of Building regulations needs to look like. Join us to gain insights into the latest green building trends and network with green building professionals.
