Housing coalition seeks to promote low carbon homes
September 8 2011
Launched today the Existing Homes Alliance Scotland announced that they would develop solutions for reducing the proportion of carbon emissions emanating from homes, protect public health and reduce fuel poverty.
Michael Levack, Chief Executive of the Scottish Building Federation (see attached image) said: “With use of the existing built environment responsible for such a significant percentage of Scotland’s carbon emissions, improving the energy efficiency of our building stock must be a crucial part of Scotland’s strategy to tackle climate change.”
There are currently around 2.4m homes in Scotland, 85% of which will still be standing come 2050.
