This major collaborative project by the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence is evaluating the carbon reduction secured by a high-quality EnerPHit retrofit of an eight-property tenement block in Glasgow.
For over 50 years, social science research has helped inform our understanding of the human drivers of climate change and, more recently, how our behaviours can contribute to achieving Net Zero.
This has included research on the environmental impacts of economic growth, the impacts of urbanisation and the risks that climate change can have on inequalities.
Research from the University of Glasgow’s College of Social Sciences engages across the full breadth of climate issues. Here we showcase this research, the work of our academics and Schools, and the events that we ran as part of the COP26 conference in Glasgow in November 2021.
