As 40 percent of annual global CO2 emissions are caused by the built environment, it is the duty of the building and design community to help address climate issues. There is a growing demand to build or retrofit buildings that aim for net-zero energy use, as shown by the growing trend of sustainable building frameworks and certification programmes. Navigating the different approaches to sustainable design and product specification is essential to create an efficient, compelling and sustainable building. 

What does the future of sustainable building look like? Navigating building design strategies and product selection explores what sustainable building means in today’s market landscape. We look at three approaches for sustainable building design, including Net-Zero, Passive House and Living Buildings, and the themes and concepts shared across each framework. We then set out the guiding principles applicable to all sustainable buildings. Finally, we look at one of the most important areas in this field, namely assessing and selecting sustainable building products and materials.
