Consumer Scotland has commented on the Scottish Government’s announcement of a consultation on proposals for a Heat in Buildings Bill.
Consumer Scotland Head of Energy Kate Morrison said:
“We welcome the publication of the Scottish Government’s Heat in Buildings Bill consultation.
“Recent research published by Consumer Scotland found most consumers are concerned about climate change and want to do more to address it, but 67% of consumers either didn’t know or were unsure what they had to do to transition to net zero.
“The consultation represents the start of this discussion, helping consumers to understand what will be expected of them and the routes they can take to decarbonise their homes.
“Consumer Scotland will engage with the consultation to ensure that fairness in decision making and a strong focus on the consumer is embedded into the drafting of the Bill.”
