Green retrofit roadmap

The building industry has fine-tuned its 20-year blueprint to make the UK’s 28 million existing homes greener ahead of the government’s imminent release of its heat and buildings strategy.

The Construction Leadership Council (CLC), together with 38 signatories, have written to business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng urging for its proposals to be adopted in the white paper.

Chief Executive of the Federation of Master Builders and CLC’s domestic repairs, maintenance and improvements working party Chair, Brian Berry, said: “This will help make our homes more comfortable and cheaper to run. This strategy also has the potential to unlock 100,000 new jobs and save 2.53m tonnes of carbon dioxide in the first four years, in return for £5.3bn of government investment.”

The latest retrofit strategy is calling for 20 trial areas in different regional economies across England to pilot a self-sustaining retrofit market.

The industry needs around 500,000 new professionals and trades to retrofit the UK’s existing homes.
