This initiative is carefully designed to maximise the reduction of carbon emissions from current housing stock while enhancing the skills of the workforce to align with evolving property standards

In collaboration with the Regional Social Landlords (RSL), we're embarking on an exciting journey to develop and deliver Retrofit training programs. This initiative is a direct response to the pressing need for upskilling to decarbonise the housing stock within our region. By doing so, we're not only fostering a greener future but also building the necessary capacity for a thriving supply chain that aligns with our ambitious Net Zero targets!
