The Sponge Buyer’s Guide to a Greener Home has been created to give you confidence and the knowledge to buy a greener, more sustainable, home.

The guide is divided up into handy sections representing different aspects of a home that influence its sustainability. Each section is colour coded and represented by an icon. Key questions are provided to ask the seller or estate agent to find out how a property will perform environmentally, socially and economically.

You can view, download and print a copy to take with you house-hunting. This website also includes further information and weblinks to help you know more.
