An opportunity to invest in a green recovery

The Green Finance Institute has released a report on zero carbon heating which details how the current challenges can be turned into a green recovery investment opportunity.

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.
