Existing high rise housing has the potential to be more resource efficient supporting better connected and more cohesive communities, and helping cities transform their environmental performance. But are existing policies designed to enable this?
This event marked the launch of Green Alliance's report, Towering ambitions - transforming high rise housing into sustainable homes, that examines how sustainable living in high rise housing can be realised. It makes recommendations for what the various actors, from governments and landlords to residents themselves, can do to make these policies work for high rise housing. We also launched our high rise green living toolkit, which focuses on what individuals and residents groups can do to improve their homes and local environment.
