AECB CarbonLite Programme
An AECB initiative providing the tools and knowledge to create low-energy buildings in line with existing and future legislation covering both domestic and non-domestic buildings.
Available to all AECB members, the CarbonLite Programme is a practical step-by-step guide aimed at all those practitioners involved in the design, construction and use of low-energy, low-CO₂ emissions buildings. The Programme is designed to be clear, informative and impartial, and outlines the reasons behind the need for more sustainable building practices, as well as providing wide-ranging yet detailed guidance on the ways in which this change is best achieved.
Through its unique combination of research materials, technical data, training programmes, discussion forums and useful links and contacts, the CarbonLite Programme represents an essential resource in the building sector’s drive towards low-carbon living and the legislation that will regulate it.
