The policy for all new non domestic buildings to be zero carbon from 2019 was introduced by the Labour Government in 2008. The Coalition Government recommitted to this target, and announced it would strengthen energy efficiency standards for new non-domestic buildings from April 2014. However, there was no clear definition of zero carbon for non domestic buildings and the policy was subsequently scrapped in July 2015. This Task Group was set up in 2013 to enable industry to investigate and recommend a way forward, as well as building the business and economic case for action.
