BRE responds to the Labour Manifesto

Further to the Labour Party's manifesto,
"Keir Starmer has set out the Labour’s Party plan to rebuild Britain. The pledges around clean energy, housing and infrastructure should offer hope to the many sectors who will be responsible for driving the transition to net zero.
"Labour’s industrial strategy promises to place data-led insights at the centre of future decision-making, by supporting the development of the AI sector and establishing a National Data Library to consolidate existing research programmes. This strategy, coupled with new powers to ensure the construction of scientific laboratories, data centres and new net zero infrastructure, should go a long way towards incentivising the innovation required to accelerate the clean heat transition.
"This could be transformative for the decarbonisation of the built environment. By spurring crucial investment in AI and data, the UK will be better equipped to deliver an improved planning system and retrofit programme for our homes and buildings. Data-driven insights will be crucial if governments – both national and local – are to successfully partner with industry and consumers to hit our net zero commitments in the years to come.
"The Labour Party’s manifesto sets out an ambitious, multi-faceted plan to grow and decarbonise the UK economy. Whatever the result of the election, maintaining a laser focus on our climate goals, including when it comes to the built environment, should be an economic imperative for the forthcoming Government."

Gillian Charlesworth, CEO BRE.
