The Project will build on the success of our Upgrading Britain’s Homes Project where our national retrofit investment calculator is being used by Opposition parties to develop policy. And it will add surge capacity to our other policy campaigns including on commercial retrofit, embodied carbon, new developments, nature restoration and resilience.   

General elections and new governments are moments when the political and policy kaleidoscope is shaken and major ideas have a chance to break through. But this will take a concerted coordinated campaign to shape the conversation, bring people together around a common-sense agenda and raise the profile of our mission. 

The project aims to: 

  • Champion key policies: UKGBC has been working intensively with members for the past period to bring oven-ready policy proposals to the major political parties, the government and department officials. This will step up over the general election period and beyond with roundtables, bilateral meetings, receptions and events. 
  • Build strong relationships with decision-makers and influencers: UKGBC has been developing relationships with key policy makers, political and policy advisors and some of the most influential back bench MPs and Peers on our agenda. This has already stepped up with a parliamentary lunch in March for a core group of influential parliamentarians. 
  • Raise the voice of the industry: We are getting general election press room ready. Let us know if you would like to join a pool of expert spokes people or champions during the campaign on influential platforms, in the media and across social media. 

Task Force purpose: 

The Task Force will help shape and deliver key aspects of the general election campaign including setting the agenda to respond to announcements, engaging with key policymakers, engaging champions. They will ensure that the campaign raises the voice of progressive voice of our sector to have real impact during this general election period. 

Please email to apply or find out more.  

Applications for the Task force are being sought from within the UKGBC membership and close on Thursday 23rd May.  

Applicants will be chosen based on their experience, whilst seeking to ensure a diversity of individuals within the Task Group. UKGBC is committed to actively targeting a diverse representation in the composition of all project groups. We want to be inclusive to everyone regardless of ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, or political beliefs.
