The built environment causes damaging environmental impacts through processes such as material extraction, manufacture, transport, construction, maintenance, demolition and disposal, and the operational energy of buildings. Building and fabric design is driven by statutory requirements to conserve operational energy in response to climate change mitigation. Very low energy in use building standards such as Passive House have been developed and these standards require careful and rigorous design incorporating heavily insulated fabric, solar heat gains, heat recovery, and non conventional heat distribution systems.
