Gemserv responds to the Chancellor’s Summer Statement

9th Jul, 2020

Responding to the Chancellor’s Summer Statement, Gemserv’s Chief Executive, Alex Goody, says

“We welcome the focus on a Green Recovery and commitment to net zero.

The £2bn Green Homes Fund is a significant step to improve energy efficiency and we hope this drives high standards, jobs, and lasting market demand to upgrade the country’s draughty housing stock. This, together with the £1bn for the public sector estate such as hospitals and schools, can help drive the holistic approach needed to reduce emissions from across the built environment.

Transport is another priority sector to decarbonise and the previously announced £1bn Automotive Transformation Fund is a welcome shot in the arm for the automotive industry to build battery supply chains and innovative solutions necessary for low carbon alternatives to the combustion engine.

We also face an environmental emergency.  So while the emphasis has been on low carbon we also welcome the support for tree planting and creating green spaces for people and wildlife which are also important contributors to physical and mental wellbeing.”
