A2Dominion supports new strategy to achieve zero carbon growth in Oxfordshire

Senior business bosses from across Oxfordshire gathered at A2Dominion’s recently-opened Eco Centre in Bicester, to launch The Oxfordshire Energy Strategy - a new initiative to help support the county play its part in addressing climate change.

A fitting location for the launch, A2Dominion’s Eco Centre is designed to be eco-friendly and sustainable with aspirations to be the first non-domestic building in the UK to achieve ‘Passivhaus Plus’, a rigorous standard for energy efficiency, developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany.

The strategy, launched by the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP), will challenge the county to commit to reducing emissions by 50% (compared with 2008 levels) by 2030 and set a pathway to achieve zero carbon growth by 2050, or sooner.

Simon Potts, A2Dominion’s Director of Strategic Land and Planning, said: “A2Dominion are pleased to be supporting the Oxfordshire Energy Strategy launch. As a residential property group with a social purpose, we are committed to delivering sustainable communities.

At Elmsbrook, NW Bicester, A2Dominion are providing 393 affordable and private new homes on the first phase of the UK’s only eco-town and the only true zero carbon development of its size.”
