Re-energising the green agenda


In its report, Re-energising the green agenda, the Commission of Inquiry of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Excellence in the Built Environment gives its backing to the Green Deal, the Government’s flagship green policy, but says it urgently needs to be reviewed. “We certainly applaud the Government for introducing the Green Deal, but we feel it is time to take another look at the detail, make it work for social housing, galvanise the schemes locally across the country and make financial incentives permanent,” the report says. “The concern is that in the current form the Green Deal and Energy Companies Obligation will deliver fewer carbon emissions reductions than the policies they replaced.”
