To make a substantial and faster impact on reducing carbon emissions in our built environment, we need to remove the cost barriers of energy efficiency in new homes and of energy retrofitting our massive existing housing stock. Key to this strategy is the methodology of designing and building assemblies and systems that reduce building materials and increase construction efficiency while using healthy and low embodied carbon resources.
