Sarah Kostense-Winterton, Executive Director of the Mineral Wool Insulation Manufacturers Association (MIMA) comments on The Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan on a Green Industrial Revolution;

"The Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan today and specifically the commitment to our homes and public buildings including the 12 month extension of the Green Homes Grant, is a reassuring step that the Government is listening and responding.

"MIMA and the insulation industry is primed to work alongside Government on this Green Industrial Revolution to use energy efficiency and zero carbon heating as a recovery engine to support jobs, industry and clean growth for our future.

We hope that this 10 Point Plan marks the moment for our Government to spark a home renovation revolution that supports a sustainable economic recovery and positions the UK as the world leader in decarbonising buildings.  

"This marker must be supported by a long-term systemic, but ambitious policy and investment strategy to provide industry and markets with the confidence and certainty to invest more in jobs and skills, now and the long run. Then, and only then, will the UK reap the full benefits for our communities and our environment."
