Historic England’s Position on Climate Change and Sustainability has been published and it provides great reassurance that heritage bodies like HE, who are members of the Climate Heritage Network and co-signatories of the Joint Heritage Sector Statement on Climate Change, are onboard and active in the drive for zero carbon.

Some of the main messages being promoted are:

  • Understanding sustainability over the long term
  • Sympathetic, informed maintenance, upgrade and reuse of existing buildings and historic places is a sustainable approach
  • Taking a ‘whole building approach’ leads to sustainable decision-making
  • Considering the whole-life carbon of materials leads to more sustainable decisions
