The UK Infrastructure Bank has published its first strategic plan, setting out how it will deliver on its mission to tackle climate change and support regional and local economic growth across the United Kingdom.
UKGBC’s Director of Communications, Policy & Places, Simon McWhirter said:
“UKGBC warmly welcomes UKIB’s Strategic Plan and the recognition that reducing emissions from buildings is critical to achieving net zero and improving our national energy and climate resilience. This is in line with our feedback to the UKIB on its Strategic Plan Discussion Document. The focus on energy efficiency, retrofit and the essential role of local authorities are particularly welcome at this time and UKGBC will continue engaging with the Bank on our shared mission to decarbonise our buildings.”
