Towards Affordable and Accessible Retrofit

Oxford Friends of the Earth is a thriving and effective local group that has been active for over 40 years. Our purpose is to work together to promote a healthy and sustainable environment

OxFoE and climate action:  Towards Affordable and Accessible Retrofit

At the group meeting in June 2021 Oxford FoE agreed to focus on how we help accelerate work on retrofitting of existing buildings’.  We agreed our aim of helping deliver ‘Affordable and Accessible’ retrofit (that is is desirable, and simple and not scary).

We need a clear and ‘net-zero consistent’ approach to retrofit. Action needs to happen at every level – national through county to community.  We have agreed a way forward – download our first action plan here: https://www.oxfoe.co.uk/oxfoe-retrofit-next-steps/

We have set up a working group (July 2021) and are starting and work on research side and engagement.  Can you help with this?
