Reducing the environmental impact of existing non-domestic buildings

Addressing the existing uk building stock and in particular non domestic stock is mush talked about – but unlike housing not too much action as yet.

The All Party Urban Development Group is undertaking its latest inquiry, exploring ways to reduce the environmental impact of existing non-domestic buildings that are concentrated in our city centres and business districts. It will examine:

  • improving energy efficiency of existing urban buildings;
  • barriers to reducing emissions from urban buildings; and
  • the policy initiatives needed – including regulation, fiscal incentives, penalties and educational campaigns – to address these barriers effectively

More talk – or start of something with teeth?

There is also a Call for Evidence.
