The Green Guide to Specification, an on-line tool produced by BRE, gives environmental assessments for building specifications including copper roofing and cladding systems.
The Guide can be viewed at www.thegreenguide.org.uk
The ‘greenguide’ website gives full information on the environmental impact ratings that were assessed and how the ‘summary ratings’ were derived. It also gives guidance on how the information should be used as part of the design process.
‘Green Copper‘ is an article by Chris Hodson for Copper Forum, which looks at the Green Guide ratings for copper specifications as well as how copper was used on a level 6 Code for Sustainable Homes project.
