Overcladding & Carbon Reduction

In June 2019 parliament passed legislation requiring the government to reduce the UK’s net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100% relative to 1990 levels by 2050.

Sustainable Refurbishment will help meet these institutional carbon reduction goals, harnessing the existing Embodied Carbon of the building and reducing the Operational Carbon and repaying the capital cost of refurbishment many times over through heating energy savings alone.
