The contribution to climate change from the housing sector comes from many factors, including energy use to heat and power the homes we live in, the carbon footprint of building new homes and the day-to-day operation of businesses maintaining and managing homes.

Exploring ways to reduce the carbon footprint of housing brings real challenges but also creates great opportunities to improve. Installing energy-saving measures can mean real-term savings for tenants and improve the quality of their homes meaning improvements benefit now as well as in the future.
