All new schools and colleges in Wales to be Net Zero Carbon

I welcomed the announcement from Welsh Labour’s Education Minister, Jeremy Miles, that all new schools and college buildings, major refurbishment and extension projects will be required to meet net zero carbon targets from January.

Buildings will be required to be Net Zero Carbon in operation, which means producing zero or negative carbon emissions as part of their operational energy.

This will help us achieve our commitment to becoming a net zero carbon nation by 2050.

Making sure our future school buildings contribute positively is a significant step we can take in Wales.
