Low Carbon Building Standards Strategy for Scotland
Sullivan Report Launch
Sullivan Report prepared by a panel appointed by Scottish Ministers.
Scottish Ministers appointed a panel to advise on the development of a low carbon building standards strategy to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Scottish Ministers were looking to the panel to recommend challenging but realistic targets for both domestic and non-domestic buildings, with a move towards the rigorous energy performance levels imposed in Scandinavia.
The panel was chaired by Lynne Sullivan, the Sustainability Director of Broadway Malyan Architects. The membership included the heads of the building regulatory systems from Norway, Austria and Denmark, together with designers, developers, contractors, regulators, researchers and energy specialists, some of whom are currently members of the Building Standards Advisory Committee. The panel has made 56 recommendations for the Scottish Government, the majority of which are within the remit of the Scottish Building Standards Agency.
