What Is A Passivhaus?

Chris Copeman

About this episode

Joining Anthony for today’s episode of our sustainability series on VetChat by The Webinar Vet, is Chris Copeman, Veterinarian and builder of the first Passivhaus veterinary practice. Passivhaus is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.


In this episode, Anthony and Chris recap their time spent at COP26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference. Chris talks about his journey to building and opening the first Passivhaus veterinary practice, and explains some of the things that you can do to improve your own building’s sustainability.
