To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have (1) to increase investment in low-carbon infrastructure, and (2) to reform business rates, to promote energy efficiency.
9 February 2021
The Government is committed to supporting low-carbon infrastructure, as set out in the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution.
With regards to energy efficiency, the Government is considering how the business rates system could respond to climate change through the fundamental review of business rates.
This will consider ideas for reform on all elements of the business rates system, including how business rates could support the decarbonisation of buildings.
