environmental issues

There are few national mandatory property indicators for environmental performance, but the definitions for indicators NI 185 (carbon dioxide) and NI 194 (air quality) can be found here. Perhaps more inspiring are the wider views of energy saving and sustainability provided by the Carbon Trust and DEFRA websites, for instance.
