The BRE Green Guide to Specification
ASBP Critique – December 2011
This document is a summary of the key shortcomings of the BRE Green Guide to Specification (Green Guide) and its use as a planning instrument as well as a means of gaining credits under the Code for Sustainable Homes. The summary has been prepared by the Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) as a means of informing the output from the Green Building Guidance Task Group set up by the UKGBC. The main purpose of providing this critique is to suggest how the UKGBC could help to accelerate sustainability advances within the construction products sector.
