To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what his policy is on the EU target for all new buildings occupied and owned by public authorities to be near-zero carbon from 31 December 2018; what assessment he has made of UK progress toward the target; and if he will make a statement.

The recast of the energy performance of buildings directive includes a requirement that all new buildings occupied and owned by public authorities after 31 December 2018 shall be nearly zero energy buildings. The recast must be implemented by 8 July 2013 and we will consult on its implementation in due course.
