CIBSE welcomes Budget support
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has welcomed the proposed carbon targets and green stimulus package announced in the 2009 Budget.
CIBSE chief executive Stephen Matthews said: “These proposals could provide a much needed boost to the low carbon sector and create many new jobs if they are implemented appropriately. It is excellent news that the Government has committed to a legally binding target to cut carbon emissions by 34% by 2020 as part of the world’s first carbon budget.
“Funding an expanded green industry is vital to ensure Britain can meet these new targets. We need to deliver the manufacturing capacity and skills if we are to deliver on these goals.
“CIBSE low carbon specialists are already well placed to provide the knowledge and experience to deliver more energy efficient businesses and public buildings, and to implement the recommended improvements identified in energy performance certificates.”
