CBI responds to energy efficiency report
The CBI responded to the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee’s report on energy efficiency.
Rain Newton-Smith, CBI Chief Economist, recently said:
“UK business stands squarely behind the Government’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. This legislation is the right response to the global climate crisis, and firms are ready to play their part in combating it.
“Energy efficiency will be central to meeting our climate commitments, so we welcome the recommendation that it be designated a national infrastructure priority and urge Government to adopt it.
“Homes, offices and buildings are the country’s largest source of carbon emissions. A more ambitious set of policies to deliver the energy efficiency improvements, such as better efficiency ratings, is needed.
“A cross-departmental approach, working jointly with business, will improve the efficiency of our homes and buildings and develop the skills and funding needed to make them fit for the future.”
