The Green Finance Institute has launched a Green Mortgage Hub, an online resource collating publicly-available information on UK green mortgages into an interactive table, alongside a library of articles, report, tools and pilots related to the green mortgage market.
The hub aims to inform and encourage lenders considering the green mortgage market, as well as being a trusted source of information for mortgage intermediaries, policymakers and NGOs focused on decarbonising the built environment.
Emma Harvey, programme director at the Green Finance Institute, said: “The finance sector is starting to embrace the opportunities that green products offer to support their customers in the decarbonisation of their homes, and providing information, tools and case studies can help to encourage innovation.
“The Green Mortgage Hub will provide a snapshot of UK green home financing, acting as a resource for lenders to continue developing innovative green home finance solutions.”
The Green Mortgage Resource is part of a suite of tools and products being created by the Green Finance Institute’s Coalition for the Energy Efficiency of Buildings, which is working with finance, property, energy and policy experts to create the conditions and markets for private finance to flow into decarbonising our homes.
