The drive for zero carbon homes will significantly impact home improvers, who have a major role to play in the push to net zero, according to the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC). 

The NHIC, an umbrella organisation for the home improvement sector, is leading a private debate in the House of Lords on 14 September, and one of the aims is to develop a zero carbon homes action plan for government, industry and homeowners to follow.
