Code for Sustainable Homes

The Code* is the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes. The Code aims to reduce our carbon emissions and create homes that are more sustainable.

The CSH covers nine categories of sustainable design:

There are six Code levels Code 1 to Code 6 with Code 6 being a carbon zero home.
