It is widely accepted that retrofitting our existing buildings is absolutely critical if we are to achieve Net Zero. Around 18% of our annual national CO2e emissions come from existing homes—homes that will still be standing in 2050. With 80% of the homes projected for 2050 already built, the retrofit challenge is monumental. Whether you're a property owner, developer, industry professional, or simply curious about how the UK can overcome this challenge, this session will equip you with knowledge of diverse financial models and provide expert insights into successful retrofit projects, showcasing the economic and environmental benefits.
