The need for sustainable building methods
According to Government statistics, back in 2009 buildings accounted for 43% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Through inefficient usage of energy and poor waste management methods, this can in part cause damage to the environment.
With the recent news of the increased melt of the ice caps in the Arctic Ocean, this has further bought home the need for members of the public to act more actively in how ethically they are to the environment. This comes right down to how we as the public “consume” and live on a day to day basis. In detail here, this comes right down to how we live in our homes and going forwards this will go on to place a great deal of emphasis as to how homes are built and developed.
For members of society to make a wider difference, it is a must for us to make more of an effort to ensure our homes utilise their heat in the best ways possible. Too many homes have poor insulation, letting heat escape all too easily. This has placed emphasis on areas such as the window glazing used, choice of boilers installed and even the need for people to invest in solar panel technology. Getting these such investments in place can only go to help the environment and help combat the damage which would otherwise be made.
