Response to BEIS Net Zero Review
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.
