Economic Benefits of Retrofit for Local Communities

Retrofit is a powerful tool that not only helps tackle the climate emergency, but also has the potential to create strong, sustainable local economies, particularly in the post-pandemic world amidst the ongoing war in Europe, as well as the cost of living crisis. Here are some of the key economic benefits of retrofit:

Creating Jobs: Retrofit has the potential to generate widespread employment opportunities in local communities, from retrofit surveyors and installers to project managers and engineers.

Supporting Small and Local Businesses: Retrofit offers a wealth of opportunities for small, local businesses, providing a boost to the local economy.

Reducing Energy Bills: Retrofitting can help reduce energy costs and address fuel poverty in local communities.

Building Community Resources: Retrofit can help build the resources of local communities, leading to stronger and more resilient local economies.
