Built to perform: Fact sheets

An industry led pathway to a zero carbon ready building code
14 Nov 2018

Improved energy performance of buildings presents a win-win-win opportunity, reducing stress on the electricity network, offering bill savings, supporting a least-cost pathway to a zero carbon built environment, and improving health and resilience outcomes for households and businesses. The National Construction Code is a ready-made policy instrument to influence the operational energy use of new buildings and major renovations. Built to Perform investigates opportunities to make the Code ‘Zero Carbon Ready’.
A Zero Carbon Ready Code would maximise the potential for new construction to cost-effectively contribute to achieving zero carbon buildings, and prepare buildings built today for the 2050 zero carbon environment in which they will ultimately be operating.
