Meg welcomes lofty ambitions

Monday, October 26, 2009

MP for Sheffield Heeley Meg Munn welcomes the new report from the Audit Commission- ‘Lofty ambitions: the role of councils in reducing CO2 emissions’. The report underlines the threat of climate change, and the urgent need for government and local councils to work together to tackle the issue.

 

The Audit Commission highlight throughout the report the need to make homes more energy efficient, cutting emissions and bring financial savings to households, which will reduce the grip fuel poverty has on the poorer sections of society. The Audit Commission is an independent watchdog, driving economy, efficiency and effectiveness in local public services to deliver better outcomes for everyone.

 

Meg said:

 

“Housing is an important area in which to tackle climate change. It generates local jobs and expertise as well as bringing benefits to residents as well as the planet. Making household energy efficient will cut emissions and bring the financial costs to residents down, which can never be a bad thing.

 

One-third of CO2 emissions in England come from energy used to heat and power homes. Reducing domestic emissions will be costly in the short term but in the long run it will save on household fuel bills. Home energy efficiency is improving, but there is much more to do to promote low-carbon and renewable sources of energy.”

 

Parliament has set out a legally binding framework to reduce UK greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% of their 1990 level by 2050. This will require both reductions in energy consumption and changes in the way that energy is produced.
