    Eversheds Sutherland joins the steering committee for Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings

    Eversheds Sutherland is pleased to announce that it has joined the Green Finance Institute’s steering committee for the Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings (CEEB). The CEEB is a group of private, public and third-sector organisations aiming to create the market for financing net-zero carbon and climate-resilient buildings in the UK by accelerating the pace of financial innovation and scale-up. The Coalition is formed of global professionals from financial services, local and national government, energy and construction industries, academia and civil society.

    Jonathan Malim, Head of Debt Capital Markets & Structured Finance, Eversheds Sutherland, said:

    “We are delighted to be a member of the Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings steering committee. We are wholly committed to its outcomes and look forward to contributing to these in a meaningful way.”

    The outcomes and recommendations of the CEEB’s market review will be published in Spring 2020, while the pilot ‘demonstrator’ projects will be presented at the 2020 UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP26) in Glasgow, in December. In recognition that efforts to decarbonise buildings are global, the Coalition will also work with international partners to adopt and share best practices.

    CEEB Chairman and Green Finance Institute Chief Executive, Dr Rhian-Mari Thomas said:

    “Financial markets need to play a leading role to meet the needs of our society, and to mobilise capital to address the climate emergency. The Green Finance Institute’s role is to convene innovators, sector specialists and policymakers to harness their creativity to identify and overcome the barriers to the deployment of green funding.” 

    Over the next 12 months, the CEEB will design, develop and launch a portfolio of scalable demonstrators of new financial solutions that unlock investment into the low-carbon and resilient building sectors. To ensure the demonstrators appeal across all residential building tenures, the CEEB will conduct a comprehensive review of the UK residential retrofit market, identifying the barriers to widescale upgrading of existing housing stock.
