Under Theresa May’s leadership, the current Conservative Government has set out its vision of a country, an economy and a society that works for everyone. Achieving this vision requires the Government to address some of the fundamental challenges facing British people today.

  1. The urgent need to build new homes and thriving communities
  2. To reduce energy bills for those that are just about managing
  3. Improved health and wellbeing to reduce the burden on the NHS
  4. For jobs to be created, skills to be developed, and productivity to be boosted in a post-Brexit Britain

The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) and its multitude of diverse and progressive member businesses believe that the built environment is fundamental to addressing these challenges. We know that building places that work for everyone can and will support the Government’s policy priorities.
