Campaigning to allow heritage buildings to play their part in fighting climate change

Around 500,000 buildings in England are protected by statutory listing and hundreds of thousands more are situated in conservation areas. Adapting these buildings to be more energy efficient and reducing their environmental impact is currently a complicated and costly process.

Policy that is inconsistent and inconsistently applied, together with fragmented guidance offer little help to building owners, leaving a substantial percentage of buildings vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

With partners including the National Trust, Peabody and The Crown Estate, we are campaigning for policy change which would act as a powerful stimulus to the green economy and help protect a crucial part of our heritage while contributing to the Government’s net zero aims.
