Scoping of ‘Best Practices’ in natural, energy efficient and sustainable building products and services

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    A plethora of sustainability assessment methodologies exists but incomplete
    coverage of the triple bottom line appears the norm. In this
    paper we present our experience in developing and operationalising a set
    of assessment criteria for the selection of ‘Best Practices’ (BPs) that promote
    natural and sustainable building products and services for enhanced
    energy efficiency in retrofitting existing dwellings in the Northern Periphery
    Programme Region.
