The publication of Mission Retrofit, which focuses on the imperative to retrofit the 85% of existing buildings that will still be standing in 2050 to meet net zero targets, has been welcomed by CIBSE.
It is the first report from the Buildings Mission Zero Network, convened by Chris Skidmore MP, of which CIBSE is a member.
The report highlights the need for a clear strategy for the retrofitting of existing building stock. It also defines a National Retrofit Mission.
A further report, titled Building the Future, will focus on new buildings.
