Homes account for 22% of carbon emissions which is why reaching for NetZero2050 can only be achieved with a culminative effort from all sides of the housing sector, social housing is no different.

Social housing is in a unique position, with a strong track record of providing good quality, energy efficient homes for its tenants, social housing is at the forefront of standards in the wider housing industry. It can pave the way and showcase that this sector takes the route to NetZero seriously.

However, Inside Housing, the leading weekly magazine for the UK social housing sector, estimates that “£104bn is how much it could cost to decarbonise the UK’s social housing stock, based on the average decarbonisation cost per property provided”.

2050 suddenly doesn’t seem so far away when these estimates are projected. Commitment to NetZero should be part of every social housing landlord’s long-term plan, ultimately emissions from social housing will have to be drastically slashed.

An important tool in reaching NetZero is reducing carbon emissions energy use, how do we do this across social housing sector? With technology!
