This is a letter from UKGBC’s Deputy Chief Executive Simon McWhirter to the Prime Minister in response to government’s rollback of green policies in later September 2023.

Our letter outlines how damaging the Prime Minister’s change of approach will be for the climate, and industries in the UK who have been gearing up to deliver net zero. Particularly, we stress that we won’t meet our climate targets or bring energy bills down by delaying plans to stop burning fossil fuels and without the support, incentives and regulation needed to insulate our draughty buildings.

Our public response to the roll-back, alongside comments from a range of UKGBC members can be found here. The day before, when rumours first came out about the U-turn UKGBC responded here.
