Event description
A webinar exploring IPPR's plan for the housing sector to address the climate crisis, create jobs and benefit communities.

About this Event

The Committee on Climate Change estimates that we need to reduce residential buildings emissions by 82.5 per cent through a combination of low-carbon heating, heating energy efficiency and appliance efficiency.

Upgrading and greening our homes is an opportunity to create new jobs, level up the UK and secure more good quality and affordable housing. IPPR has developed a plan for the housing sector to deliver faster action to address climate change; ensure further action to transform our economic and deliver a fairer approach that will lower bills and make sure communities benefit from the change to come.

At this event, we will discuss IPPR’s recent research into decarbonising the social rented sector, as well as wider policy action to address carbon objectives, funding models and consumer perspectives.
