London, UK – A WWF campaign to build more sustainable homes has won support from the UK government with the announcement that all new homes will be "zero carbon" in less than ten years. Stamp duty exemption will also be introduced on sustainable homes, providing home buyers with an incentive to go "green".

The commitment, made in a report by UK Chancellor Gordon Brown, follows more than four years of lobbying efforts through WWF's One Million Sustainable Homes campaign.

“This is a great breakthrough," said Paul King, WWF-UK's Director of Campaigns.

"For the first time, the Chancellor has shown he really backs 'green' housing development. It is also a victory for WWF which has been campaigning for many years to bring 'green' homes from the fringes to the mainstream."

The introduction of stamp duty exemptions for sustainable homes also sends a clear signal to the house building industry and homebuyers that energy efficient homes are a good investment, both in terms of up-front savings and long-term reduced running costs.

We have received this unusual request from Channel 4!

Channel 4 is looking for an eco-family to participate in its award-winning series Wife Swap. The programme takes two women out of their households and ‘swaps’ them over to experience a different lifestyle. As Wife Swap attracts 4 million viewers per episode, the right eco-family will really raise the profile of living a green life to audiences that wouldn’t normally consider it as an option.

If you, or any of your friends have adapted your daily lifestyle so you are more environmentally aware and would love the opportunity to show others how a bit of extra thought can make a big difference, please get in touch: call Kimberly on 020 7013 4476 or email Kimberly.godbolt@rdfmedia.com
