The Code for Sustainable Homes was launched in April 2007 and replaced Ecohomes for the assessment of new housing in England. The Code is an environmental assessment method for new homes based upon BRE Global’s Ecohomes and contains mandatory performance levels in 6 key areas. 

The Code aims to protect the environment by providing guidance on the construction of high performance homes built with sustainability in mind.

BRE Global and CLG have worked closely together to ensure that the Code meets the latest regulatory requirements and addresses issues that emerged from an earlier industry wide consultation.
