Decarbonisation of Housing Stock in Wales  

Better homes, better Wales, better world cover image
CBC worked with the Welsh Governments Decarbonisation Advisory Group (DAG) to develop recommendations for policy to make all owner-occupied housing stock in Wales carbon neutral by 2050. A combination of Behavioural Systems Mapping and the Behaviour Change Wheel framework was used to create policy recommendations which took account of the complex influences on home-owners’ retrofit behaviours.
