Moving to Zero Carbon Insulation

Industry & Regulatory News, Construction, United Kingdom, Sustainability

A new online CPD-certified presentation from the Insulation Manufacturers Association (IMA) explains how fabric-first approaches can achieve net zero emissions.


Achieving zero carbon through a fabric first approach – will provide viewers with an understanding of the importance of achieving zero carbon and how widely available and cost-effective insulation technologies will help to achieve this. It outlines lambda, R and U-values, offers a comparison of insulation types and gives insight into regulations and voluntary schemes. A number of case studies demonstrate how PIR has been used to meet regulatory and voluntary scheme standards..

 

Suitable for anyone looking to learn about how to achieve zero carbon through a fabric first approach including specifiers, installers, clients and students, the CPD outlines why high performance insulation is one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to reduce energy demand and cut CO2.

 

IMA Chief Executive, Simon Storer, explains: 

"In new buildings the fabric first approach can reduce heating demand by 90-95% and is the secret to achieving more thermally efficient building envelopes,” “This CPD presentation explains how taking the fabric first approach using the best available wall, floor and roof insulation will be key to hitting our net zero climate change targets.”
