Carbon pledge from the Government
Housing Minister Grant Shapp has underlined the Government’s commitment to make all new homes zero carbon from 2016.
Paul King, chairman of the Zero Carbon Hub and chief executive of the UK Green Building Council says: “The Minister’s announcement is very welcome. We now have a clear and workable way forward that builds directly on the recommendations of the UKGBC and the work of the Zero Carbon Hub over the last two years.
“Consistency and clarity are essential pre-requisites for continued private sector investment and innovation.”
