Survey on CO2 reduction in old houses launched

Builders and contractors are to be surveyed as part of a two-week consultation on how best to reduce carbon emission in old houses.

The consultation, which is being run by the UK Green Building Council, the Sustainable Development Commission and the Technology Strategy Board; aims to consult as wide a range of people as possible through its online survey.

The survey will ask for feedback on technology and innovation; markets and service offerings; behaviour change and awareness; and policy.

The online survey, which starts on August 18, will be followed by a workshop on September 12. A report will then be completed by the end of September, which will be sent to the government.
