John Wickenden, Research Manager at Housemark commented:


“Everyone who completes the survey will be invited to a launch event and will receive a detailed analysis report, which includes essential insights into decarbonisation comparisons – covering the levels of decarbonisation being considered, the scope of works and landlord timelines. The report will also feature learnings from sector best practice including use of technology, finance and funding models, regeneration and retrofit, along with cost and performance data to help inform your organisation’s decarbonisation strategies and approaches.”
