The head of campaigns for WWF-UK has applauded the government's decision to include the private rented sector in its recently-unveiled Green Deal, which was announced yesterday (November 2nd).

This will demand that those with buy to let buildings insurance make reasonable energy-efficient improvements to properties following such requests from tenants, although they will not be faced with any upfront costs when making these renovations.

Other details include allowing local authorities to insist that professionals in the industry refurbish the worst-performing real estate.

Colin Butfield noted that parliament's move was "absolutely right" and without efforts such as these to improve rental homes, "the UK would be unable to reduce carbon emissions sufficiently or tackle fuel poverty".

However, he went on to urge the coalition to take this further, adhering to a strict deadline for minimum standards and setting benchmarks that increase over time so as to help the country achieve near zero-carbon properties by 2050.
