Government Should Make Going Green Easy

London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 13, 2009 -- With the Department for Energy and Climate Change (Decc) looking to give one in every four homes a green makeover, a former cabinet minister has suggested that the government will have to take the stress out of going green if the UK is to hit climate change targets.Chairman of the Environment Agency Lord Chris Smith suggests that it is currently too difficult for homeowners to change to greener ways and that the government should help take away the hassle, reports the Daily Telegraph.

`We have to do it by making it as easy as possible for people to take up the efficiency offer,` he said, according to the newspaper.`By doing something as basic and simple as having someone knock on the door, spend half an hour providing free advice about what can be done to help, and then offering to make all the arrangements to have it done.`Take the hassle out of going green - no complexity, no daunting forms, and I suspect a huge take-up.`With world leaders due to meet in Copenhagen in December to thrash out a successor to the Kyoto Protocol on carbon emissions and climate change, there has been a renewed interest in cutting carbon footprints at all levels.
