General elections and new governments are moments when the political and policy kaleidoscope is shaken and major ideas have a chance to break through. UKGBC is stepping up its policy and advocacy work this year to bring the sector together around a common sense agenda, shape the conversation with decision-makers, and raise the profile of our mission. 

This member-powered campaign for the general election year builds on the success of previous advocacy projects and draws together our live campaigns for policy progress on upgrading Britain’s homes, planning reform, commercial retrofit, embodied carbon, new developments, nature restoration, and resilience. 

Building Britain’s Future

These are the four big opportunities for any incoming government has to tackle the multiple crises facing the country – from soaring energy, housing and health costs, to left behind and vulnerable communities, and climate and nature breakdown – by upgrading the places we live, work and play:

Make home upgrades and easy choice

Make new developments high quality, well-connected and green

Protect our communities from climate risks

Renew our town centres through upgrading commercial and public buildings

How to Get Involved

During the general election period and beyond, UKGBC will be working with members and allies to promote this ambitious policy agenda through roundtables, briefings, panel events, receptions, dinners, op eds, sign-on letters, rapid responses to policy announcements, social media campaigns and more.
