Fund and require the insulation of all social housing by 2025

Petition Details

To immediately commit to enact within four months a legally binding national plan to fully fund and require social housing providers to insulate all social housing in England, for a just transition towards full decarbonisation of all parts of society and the economy.

Additional Information

The UK Committee on Climate Change (CCC) made clear that reductions in carbon emissions from housing have "stalled" and that "we cannot meet our climate objectives without a major improvement in UK housing" (2019).

Poor quality housing is bad for people's health and wellbeing. An estimated spend of £10 billion to improve the 'poor' housing in England could save the NHS £1.4 billion p.a. and has been estimated to pay for itself in just over seven years and then accrue further benefits (CCC 2019)
