Installers “hold key to green recovery”

Installers have been encouraged to embrace their position at the heart of the UK’s green recovery by Stephen Huller, director of home improvement finance at BNP Paribas Personal Finance UK.

He was speaking following the launch of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) progress report, released last week.

The CCC’s plan includes a move to switch to low carbon heating in new homes from 2025, along with “a commitment to ensuring that gas boilers are phased out of all retrofit projects within the next 15 years”.

He said: “The long-term goals that the Committee on Climate Change has set out are admirable and exciting. It is something that we should all get behind to ensure the UK has a much greener future. But in the short term, it’s important that we remember some of the fundamental changes we can all make to have a meaningful impact on the world around us.

“We have all got used to cleaner air and healthier cities during the pandemic. We expect to see a certain appetite to maintain this and the home is one of the best places to start. Installers can underpin this by reminding homeowners of the choices they have available to them when it comes to reducing the emissions of their home.”
