The UK has a national target to cut CO2 emission by 80% of the 1990 figure by 2050. This paper reflects on over 20 year of work into the design and operation of advanced naturally ventilated (ANV) buildings. The alternative forms of ANV building are described and measured CO2 emissions presented. The resilience of ANV buildings to anticipated changes in the UK climate are discussed. KEYWORDS Non-domestic buildings, advanced natural ventilation, carbon emissions, internal temperatures, future climate.
