The Communities and Local Government 'Green Commercial Buildings Task Group' commissioned the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) to investigate the costs and benefits of raising the energy performance standards in new non-domestic buildings above those currently set out in the Building Regulations all the way to zero carbon.

This report prepared by UK-GBC investigates the opportunities for achieving zero carbon in new non domestic buildings. Following on from the targets set out in the Code for Sustainable Homes to achieve radical emissions reductions in new homes; this report aims to add to the understanding of whether similar targets in the commercial sector can be set and achieved and in what timescale.
