As the cost of energy rises and the availability of natural resources diminishes, incorporating green design into your development can benefit both you and the environment. But how can this be achieved and are there real examples of buildings in Suffolk that prove this?
The Suffolk Green Buildings Network is here to inspire and help you find out what you can do to make your building greener. In Suffolk we believe that green design is not only about minimising negative impacts but also about aspiring to deliver net positive impacts – for example through re-use of materials, renewable energy production, water recycling, the provision of habitat for wildlife and the creation of healthy & inspiring environments to live and work in.
Use this site’s updated mapping tool (shown below) to explore our extensive range of Suffolk case studies, find information on sustainable builds, local suppliers and green energy options to cut your energy bills. All helping you to make your green aspirations a reality and Suffolk the Greenest County!
