Homes are designed today to be sustainable, this means there are a number of factors that have to be considered which weren’t as important decades ago.
According to the Code for Sustainable Homes, England’s environmental impact rating system for housing, there are 8 factors that are considered.
Energy and CO2 emissions – have to meet a minimum standard of the code
Materials used – impact of construction materials for key construction elements (but there isn’t a mandatory minimum standard)
Waste – generated by the construction process, recycling encouraged (again no mandatory standard)
Pollution – resulting from the operation of the dwelling (no standard)
Health and Well-being – effects of the indoor environment on the occupants (no standard)
Management – steps taken to allow good management of the environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the home (no standard)
Ecology – impact on local ecosystem, bio-diversity and land use (no standard)
