Sustainable Homes 2015
The 2015 Guide to Sustainable Homes has just been released by Blue and Green tomorrow; The authors of the magazine for Ethical Investment, Socially Responsible Investors and Green Investment
The publisher says in his opening note:
American Poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Frost said that a home, “is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.”
My dictionary tells me that, ”a home is a place of residence or refuge and comfort. It is usually a place in which an individual or a family can rest and be able to store personal property.”
It is all of those things, but in 2015 a home can be so much more.
Our homes are not just a place where we spend time together with family our refuge and a store of wealth.
Today they can also be a workplace, a school, a public meeting place, a campaign HQ or power station. Yes, power station.
In the second edition of our Guide to Sustainable Homes we explore how we continue to build homes for yesterday’s weather and environment.
The main thrust of this year’s report, is how to take positive steps to choose a more sustainable home or help the environment without compromising on comfort.
We also look at a solution to the global energy crisis,energy incentives and standards, and how to make your home green. We look at a shared dream of self-sustainability.
We dig out our crystal ball and look into the future at a winning new vision of a utopian green city and the future of housebuilding.
A truly sustainable home has never been more affordable and attainable. We hope you find some food for thought in our guide.
