    Abstract

    This evidence review is based on a systematic literature review of over 80 papers on the wider impacts of climate change mitigation in the built environment sector. The review looked at qualitative and quantitative sources of relevance to the Scottish context. Particular consideration was given to the impacts from an equalities perspective. Overall the evidence base suggests there are a number of potential co-benefits associated with climate change mitigation measures in the built environment sector, with health and fuel poverty reduction benefits associated with increased energy efficiency identified as a key theme. It is important to note that the extent of co-benefits is dependent on how and where policies are implemented and consumer understanding and uptake.
