the energy question and life cycle analysis
While current legislation focuses on operational energy, the future of sustainable building regulations will be to expand into other aspects in a more holistic way.
Today the question is operational energy efficiency; in the future it will

to be part of the calculation for future-proofing the planet and reducing
our eco footprint.
There is much written about these matters, and we can refer you to some
key information (contact email@example.com).
