Low carbon thrust from Carbon Trust

Low carbon thrust from Carbon Trust
The Carbon Trust have published fresh research that serves to outline the benefits to companies and organisations of specifying a low carbon building.

Three such recently built buildings: Great Glen House, Inverness; Solais House, Bellshill & Carrochan, Balloch, were chosen for the investigation due to their geographic spread.

Amongst considerations explored were the impact on occupier and company experience, this was carried out via a series of interviews to explore whether key indices had increased in consequence in correlation with the move.

Findings identified eight key business benefits: Reduced operating costs; increased asset value; greater availability of air and daylight; open plan offices; raised profile; increased awareness of green issues; improved image and easier recruitment.

It is hoped that this knowledge will help to dispel misconceptions within the industry and encourage an increasing acceptance of low carbon design and technologies.
