Green for growth - index pic

We’d like to congratulate Building on this very timely and highly relevant campaign, which has our full-hearted support. If we are to secure future investment in this area, it is essential that the government demonstrates a clear commitment to the wider green agenda and offers essential clarity surrounding a number of the initiatives that are already in place.

We particularly welcome the campaign’s call for plans to roll out DECs to the private sector to be reinstated - although before this can happen, we need to see the government take a stronger lead in ensuring compliance among buildings in the public sector, which are already required to have these informative and very valuable documents in place.
