About us

Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust (CSBT) is a charitable company committed to making building design and construction as sustainable as possible, with minimal negative impacts on the environment, both locally and globally.

This includes detailed design to minimise energy consumption, sourcing materials as locally as possible and using renewable materials and technologies whenever possible.

This approach will increase environmental benefits but will also bring economic benefits through the use of local skilled labour, local renewable materials suppliers e.g. recycled timber projects and renewable energy generation equipment. It will ultimately bring social benefits through the provision of lower running costs, well-designed and healthy homes and business accommodation in Cornwall.

CSBT, leading by example, gives advice and training in the understanding and skills needed to build a sustainable future. CSBT is also committed to designing and constructing buildings that fulfil this criteria.

CSBT believes that a safe and comfortable place to live and work is a basic need that should be available to all. To achieve this sustainably it is necessary to build with thought and care which aims to cut out waste.

Buildings should be healthy environments that are efficient and meet our needs harmoniously. Since the industrial revolution most of the buildings which have been constructed are very wasteful and inefficient. One of society’s biggest challenges is to rectify this by retrofitting which CSBT is taking a strong lead in.
