The UK government could take a tougher line on reducing the countries carbon emissions. Additional government support in investment for homeowners could enable eco-friendly home improvement purchases like double glazing, according to one newspaper.
The Guardian’s Julian Graff stated: “Individuals can agitate against climate change and act to mitigate its effects. But it’s politicians who presently hold the purse strings and develop public policy frameworks.”
Achieving the UK’s target of reducing carbon emissions by 20 per cent before 2020 can be reached by investing in energy-efficient home improvements, according to the newspaper, which cited the example of Labour’s plan to make all new houses zero-carbon from 2016.
Christina Simons of Sustainable Tourism Gold Award winner hotel, the Cottage Lodge, recently told CatererSearch.com that installing UPVC windows has help her to dramatically cut emissions at the facility.
