We round-up a range of articles looking at efforts to reduce carbon emissions and reduce the environmental impacts of construction.
This programme provides a heads-up on the Government’s Low Carbon Construction Action Plan, which was launched by construction Minister Mark Prisk in June 2011. The Plan is designed to provide a structure for taking forward the recommendations in last autumn’s cross-industry Innovation and Growth Team (IGT) report.
This programme aims to help those who wish to understand more about how the environmental performance of construction products should be calculated.

In this book extract from The Whole Building Handbook: How to Design Healthy, Efficient and Sustainable Buildings by Varis Bokalders and Maria Block, we look at the increasingly pressing need to make buildings sustainable.
