Description

Considers the broad environmental concerns of climate change, resource use and impact on wildlife, but balances these against the needs for a high quality, safe and healthy internal environment. Issues assessed are grouped into seven categories: energy, transport, pollution, materials, water, ecology and land use, and health and well being. Provides a credible, transparent label for new and converted/renovated homes, including houses, apartments and sheltered accommodation. The document also contains a Rating Prediction Checklist.
