Building greener homes reduces in cost each year

The Communities Minister, Andrew Stunell, has claimed that building homes with low-carbon, greener standards is becoming cheaper each year in his latest report. Basing this claim on interviews with developers and information about recent environmental technology, he shows the extra costs through building to the Code for Sustainable Homes’ standards continues to drop yearly.

Mr. Stunell said,

“Building greener homes is vital if we are to meet our nation’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change – so today’s report is good news for the entire country.”

“As a country we still have a lot of work to do to reduce carbon emissions from new development,” he continues, “but what these figures show us is that as the construction industry continues to build more sustainable homes, there is further potential for the costs associated building greener homes to continue falling.”

Paul King – UK Green Building Council’s chief executive – added,

“This report from CLG is further evidence that clear and consistent government policy goes hand in hand with innovation, improved efficiency and cost reduction by industry.”
