Green Deal Needs to More Attractive, concludes All Party Parliamentary Group

Mon, 2013-10-14

A new report, Re-energising the Green Agenda, presents the findings of the Commission of Inquiry of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Excellence in the Built Environment. While it supports the Green Deal, it argues it urgently needs improvements to make it more financially attractive.

It also suggests that the Government needs to give clearer signals that the Green Agenda is a priority, including commitment to revising building regulations, to build confidence in the construction sector.

The University of Reading Retrofit team contributed to this report and the report references their input, based on the EPSRC Retrofit 2050 research.
