Mission Retrofit also suggests introducing a new bill to Parliament to help achieve net zero buildings

A national retrofit delivery agency is key to overseeing upgrades and making buildings net zero, according to a new report.

The report, co-authored by Skidmore and the deputy chief executive of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), Simon McWhirter, states that a new national independent body is needed for the overnment to meet its retrofit and insulation targets.

The proposed agency would be tasked with setting and delivering the UK’s carbon emission reduction targets for 2030 and 2035, as well as developing plans to install 600,000 heat pumps annually by 2028.
