Policy & Advocacy



The built environment has an important role to play in the post-COVID economic recovery, with projects that can stimulate clean growth and create jobs in every part of the country – supporting the levelling up agenda and improving people’s health and wellbeing at a time when this has never been more important.

The paper outlines key policy recommendations across three areas:

  • New homes and buildings
  • Home energy efficiency retrofit
  • Biodiversity and climate resilience
