The Government’s target is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. In support of this, and as committed to in the Clean Growth Strategy, we will consult later this year on amendments to Part L of the Building Regulations, which provide a minimum standard for improvement. This will include setting out further details on our plans to implement a Future Homes Standard by 2025 for new homes to have low carbon heat and world leading levels of energy efficiency, to create homes fit for the future, with low energy bills and better for the environment.
