Our System

Net Zero

Humanity is hurtling towards a climate catastrophe that will wreak havoc on our planet. Now is the time to act. The built environment is responsible for over 40% of global emissions, so we have a pivotal role to play in responding to the climate emergency. The Passivhaus standards provide a proven route to net zero.

The best time to act was yesterday. The next best time is now. Let’s build a brighter future.

To avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change, global warming must be restricted to no more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, as per the Paris Agreement. If we miss this target, we risk reaching climatic tipping points that will be disastrous and irreversible. Floods, fires and heatwaves will become more frequent and fiercer, sea levels will rise, crops will fail and severe droughts will force mass migration.

In the UK, we’ve already witnessed considerable changes to our climate.

Devastating floods pose a severe threat to people’s lives and livelihoods. The temperature in the UK topped 40° for the first time ever in July 2022 – triggering widespread wildfires across the country.

UK’s climate targets

  • Reduce carbon emissions by 45% by 2030
  • Achieve Net Zero by 2050

Passivhaus: your route to Net Zero

A Net Zero home generates as much energy as it consumes. It’s far easier to achieve Net Zero when a building is already highly energy efficient. Because of their low energy demands, Passivhaus properties are primed for Net Zero.
