UK homes fall­ing short of eco rec­om­men­da­tions

Build It - - NEWS -

The lat­est Homes and Mort­gages ING In­ter­na­tional Sur­vey, which ques­tioned 14,725 peo­ple in 15 coun­tries on their at­ti­tudes to sus­tain­able liv­ing, has put Bri­tain in sec­ond to last place in Europe. When buy­ing or rent­ing, just half of UK re­spon­dents ask about the prop­erty’s en­ergy-ef­fi­cient fea­tures, and only 13% of that group do so to un­der­stand the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact rather than be­cause of af­ford­abil­ity con­cerns – far be­hind the Euro­pean av­er­age of 28%.
