The government has legislated for the UK to become net zero in terms of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. As housing contributes around one fifth of all carbon emissions nationally, the UK will only achieve this net zero ambition if we decarbonise our existing homes and ensure that new homes are built to much higher environmental standards.

The scale of this work cannot be overstated – tackling climate change is the biggest challenge of our time, and the housing sector has a vital role to play. Housing associations must act with urgency, work together and in partnership with the government, local partners, developers, lenders, investors and residents to radically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Housing associations can lead the way and make affordable housing more efficient and sustainable for generations to come. The drive for green growth, intensified by the coronavirus crisis presents an opportunity for our sector to boost decarbonisation efforts. With the right policies, funding and technologies we have the ability to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This is not only an essential part of tackling climate change, it also saves residents money, helps combat fuel poverty, boosts the economy and creates jobs.
