Retrofitting housing

15th December 2022.

Translating net-zero commitments into actions and impacts

This study, funded by the University of Manchester and completed in collaboration with CLES, examines issues and challenges of retrofitting existing housing, which is a key step toward reaching net zero targets. We use Manchester City Council as a case study to highlight how incentive structure, asset management and investment approaches, and housing finance may need to work together in the context of climate change and relevant emerging national and local policies.
