Complete Life-Cycle Carbon Footprints Of Housing Stock

EDM number 1380 in 2007-08, proposed by Andrew Stunell on 22/04/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Energy, Environmental protection and Housing.

That this House notes that more than a third of the UK's housing stock predates 1945 and that at current replacement rates it will take several centuries to replace; therefore believes that greater research is needed into evaluating the complete life-cycle carbon footprints of existing housing stock, taking account of energy used in the manufacture of building materials, construction of the home, its efficiency in use, and eventual demolition and recycling or disposal of materials; and urges the Government to investigate the total carbon budgets for renewal and upgrading of existing homes against their demolition and replacement with houses built to higher environmental standards.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
