This report makes it clear that adapting the UK to our dangerously changing climate requires a major step-change in leadership and investment.
“As well as accelerating our net zero transition, adapting our built environment for climate change offers massive economic opportunities, including reduced household bills, billions of savings in healthcare and infrastructure repairs, and a potential boom of more than 500,000 skilled local jobs in the coming decade.
“We welcome the Climate Change Committee’s recommendations and hope to see them embedded into the third National Adaptation Programme, so that the Government can support our members across the built environment sector to skill-up, scale-up, and deliver a climate-resilient future.”Hannah Giddings, Senior Advisor for Resilience & Nature at UKGBC
