The UK's housing is draughty, wastes energy, and relies on fossil fuels that pollute our atmosphere.
We can upgrade Britain’s housing so that everyone can come home to a warm, comfortable home.

Government Going Backwards
The UK had a zero carbon homes policy - first announced in 2006. The Conservative government scrapped the regulations in 2015 in a move Julie Hirigoyen, chief executive of the UK Green Building Council, said was “the death knell” for the zero carbon homes policy.
“It is short-sighted, unnecessary, retrograde and damaging to the house-building industry, which has invested heavily in delivering energy-efficient homes,” Hirigoyen said. “Britain needs more housing but there is no justification for building homes with a permanent legacy of high energy bills.”
Six years on we are still going backwards. Let's press the government to see sense.
