GGF WELCOMES GREEN DEAL CONSULTATION

The Glass and Glazing Federation welcomed today the publication of the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation Consultation, in the expectation that it will provide clarity regarding a number of issues of vital importance to the glass and glazing industry.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is seeking views from industry and stakeholders on all aspects of the schemes, which have been published alongside an impact assessment, draft secondary legislation and a draft code of practice. Responses are due by 18th January.

Since the outset of Green Deal, the GGF has been lobbying government on a number of issues that could have a significant impact on glass and glazing manufacturers and installers, and the Federation has been working alongside a wide range of stakeholders to promote the interests of its members.

The GGF would like to invite its members to contribute to its formal response to the government consultation.

Nigel Rees, Chief Executive of the GGF, said: "The GGF has been lobbying hard on a number of aspects of the Green Deal that are of importance to our members. It is important that we maintain momentum, and continue to highlight our concerns to DECC through a response to the consultation. The GGF calls on its members to help us produce a thorough and compelling response. The consultation documents span over 700 pages altogether, and with an eight week deadline for responses, it's vital that we act quickly. I urge members to get in touch and work with us to ensure the best possible outcome."
