L&G commits to zero carbon for housing

Legal & General has said it will make all of its new housing stock net zero carbon by 2030.

L&G says net zero carbon will be achieved on all new Legal & General homes through a combination of improved thermal building fabric and the use of environmental control systems, including low and zero-carbon technologies. This will be implemented in a phased approach across all homes invested in or built by Legal & General Group including: build to rent, build to sell, later living and affordable housing.
