Legal & General Mortgage Club launches educational Green Hub to support advisers navigating the green agenda
Legal & General Mortgage Club has today launched a Green Hub to support the mortgage industry as the UK works towards its net zero goal.
The Hub includes a calendar of key milestones for industry professionals to be aware of. This currently stretches to 2035, and covers subtopics including heat pumps, EPC ratings, and new build properties. The Hub also includes webinars on topics ranging from green mortgages to whether the green agenda will impact mortgage affordability. All webinars can be watched on demand.
The Hub also compiles a vast range of useful resources from Gov.UK, Ofgem, Simple Energy Advice, and the Energy Saving Trust. These resources cover topics such as how to find out a property’s EPC rating, measure a firm’s carbon footprint, and calculate the funding available to clients looking to introduce eco-friendly home improvements. This section also includes a Key Heat Sources Glossary, which explains terms such as an air source heat pump, biomass boiler, and hydrogen-ready boiler.
The Hub also ensures users are informed of the latest industry developments by sharing regular articles in the Green News & Insights section. This includes opinion pieces from wider industry experts, including those from Danske Bank UK, LendInvest, and West One Loans.
