WHOLE LIFE CARBON FOOTPRINT & TRUE ZERO CARBON BUILDINGS
This isn't really "current" news but was presented at the 2018 Passive House Conference. This presentation is a reminder that Passive House doesn't require sustainable or carbon neutral building materials to be used meaning that a Certified Passive House building could still be bad for the environment.
