The Mortgage Marketing Forum (MMF) has just announced that its sustainability webinar for members of the Forum will be available free of charge to non-members.

The “Sustainability in the Mortgage Market” webinar will feature Ana Bajri, head of sustainability at Countrywide Surveying Services. She will discuss current government efforts to drive sustainability and achieve its net zero carbon targets, how these efforts might impact the UK residential property market, and considerations and possible next steps lenders, brokers, and businesses can take to make a more tangible difference.

“Sustainability is such an important issue that we wanted to make this event available to the whole mortgage market, not just members of the Forum,” MMF director Paul Hunt said. “Everyone wants to do the right thing, but policy is constantly evolving and there are many pitfalls, such as being seen as simply paying lip service to the issue rather than taking it as seriously as we all must. Ana has a huge amount of knowledge and experience and I know that this will be a must-attend event.”

Bajri considers sustainability her full-time job.

“There’s a lot of policy coming down the track and, at Countrywide, we are engaging with this policy and working with industry and RICS to ensure we remain the experts and can help to identify solutions for more energy-efficient housing that will tackle the long-term impact of climate risk,” she said.

“I’m looking forward to sharing some of my knowledge with the Mortgage Marketing Forum.”

The webinar will take place on Friday, 25 February, 2022, at 10am. Interested participants may register here.
