Key contribution

In keeping with our drive for energy efficiency and green building, ISOVER provides insulation solutions that are the most cost effective way to reduce energy consumption in buildings and cut associated greenhouse gas emissions.


To recognise and encourage buildings designed to minimise operational Energy demand, Primary energy consumption and CO₂ emissions.

Requirement summary

This criteria recognizes improvements in the energy performance of the building above national building regulations in relation to heating and cooling energy demand, primary energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions (using an approved building energy calculation software), Reducing energy demand has to be taken into account from the building design and/or through the systems specification.

Our contribution

Option 2

Carbon emissions along with the consumption of energy needed to heat and cool spaces are reduced when using ISOVER solutions. They help to reduce operational energy demand, primary energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Energy modeling is facilitated by Building Information Modeling (BIM) where ISOVER provides digital files for ease of simulation. Airtightness and moisture control are addressed using VARIO® systems that offer effective solutions. VARIO® solutions adapt to changes in climate, protecting the structure from moisture entering in winter and allowing the release of moisture in summer.
