The response to Covid-19 proves that drastic social and behavioural change can be done. There is now a significant opportunity for sweeping reforms in urban areas to improve health & wellbeing and mitigate against the climate emergency. These can also be drivers of economic activity.

The Passivhaus Trust and London Energy Transformative Initiative (LETI) join forces for London Climate Action Week (LCAW) to bring you an online event addressing why buildings must form a core part of the green recovery, and how to deliver.

The question is no longer why bother with energy-efficient buildings, but how can we implement at scale fast enough?! Passivhaus offers a tried and tested solution. As the Passivhaus Trust celebrates its 10th anniversary, it is an opportune moment to reflect upon the journey of the Standard in the UK over the last decade. Has this built steadfast foundations as we look ahead to the climate crisis challenges posed over the next 10 years, and beyond?

Can we design ourselves out of a climate emergency? LETI’s design guide sets out an approach and targets needed for UK schemes to achieve to reach Net Zero in operation. It offers developers & policy officers a reference point to set standards & ensure our climate crisis targets are met.
