The report has been prepared by The Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings (CEEB) – a cross-sectoral collaboration of over 200 individuals, established by the Green Finance Institute with support from E3G in 2019.
In the UK, heating the built environment is one of the largest contributors to emissions and accounts for 21% of the national total. Housing alone is responsible for two-thirds of these emissions, and a near complete decarbonisation of heat is essential to achieve the government’s net-zero target by 2050.
To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.
In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
