ABSTRACT
The article provides the author's view on the issue of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Great Britain. She mentions that claims that the building industry has the technology and the appropriate expertise to make the 50% cut on carbon is dangerous due to the point that clients will believe that zero-carbon buildings are easy to achieve. She adds that cutting CO2 is a huge responsibility and mentions that the National Health Service admits that it has difficulty in attaining its target.
