The BEIS Secretary of State has commissioned an independent review of the government’s approach to delivering its net zero target, to ensure it is delivering net zero in a way that is pro-business and pro-growth.
The review will consider how our approach to net zero can:
- deliver maximum economic growth and investment, driving opportunities for private investment, jobs, innovation, exports, and growth right across the UK
- support UK energy security and affordability for consumers and business and the need to rapidly increase and strengthen UK energy production and supply
- minimise costs borne by businesses and consumers, particularly in the short-term
We have issued a response to the net zero review, focusing on how the built environment has a central role to play in reaching net zero and how a national retrofit strategy should be seen as key policy for the UK Government. Our response also delves into consumer demand, the challenge is measuring energy efficiency and skills. A copy of our response can be downloaded below.
