We have created this website to serve as a knowledge base for the mortgage broker community on green home finance and the net zero agenda. It seeks to help brokers and other mortgage professionals understand the opportunities and challenges our industry faces as we navigate the green transition. It is primarily aimed at mortgage intermediaries and those working in the sector – but is open to anyone with a professional interest in green home finance.
Our intention is to deliver information and training materials to inform intermediaries and their customers about the journey they will have to embark upon to improve their properties’ green credentials. We will help explain exemptions, limits of expenditure and the short, medium and long-term implications in the property market.
To do this, we have joined forces with the Mortgage Climate Action Group (MCAG), who will serve as the official AMI Steering Group for the development and delivery of our cross-industry initiative on green mortgage advice.
Read more about the role of MCAG, including our shared manifesto and priorities.
We are also delighted to be working in collaboration with the Green Finance Institute (GFI), who have led the development of both a guide for lenders and a guide for brokers, with the potential for a consumer facing guide to follow.
You can find out more about AMI, MCAG and GFI in ‘Who we are‘.
In addition, we will be hosting training materials from lenders and others in the sector. Thanks to HSBC for getting us off the ground. The site will be an open resource for the sector, and will embrace infrastructure, new technology, installation, financing and how to ensure improvements are recognised and recorded.
In launching the site, we are in the early days of a decades long journey. We will continue to add to and amend the site over time. We want it to be yours, so please let us know what we can do to improve it for you.
