Highlights from the AJ Sustainability Conference held on 5 December.

In addition to showcasing pioneering examples, discussion focused on how to prioritise different sustainable strategies and how to source green materials. The BRE's Green Guide to Specifications provides environmental-performance data for building specifications in a user-friendly format. It will be expanded into other sectors beyond homes and commercial buildings in 2007. See www. bre.co. uk/greenguide and www.bre. co. uk/envprofiles.

Also, www. greenspec. co. uk will expand to include a National Green Specification in 2007, which, it says, will be complementary to NBS.

Several speakers criticised the government's 10 per cent renewables policy for encouraging the use of renewables on buildings that have not been designed from the outset to be energy efficient.
