If I remember correctly the government consultation which ended in January 2021 and to which we are still awaiting their response floated the idea of adding environmental impact as a separate issue in addition to the current EPC requirements. I anticipate that they will probably go ahead with the the proposed changes to the minimum required EPC rating and once that has bedded in environmental impact will be the next stage, all at vast expense to private landlords.

No date has yet been stipulated, as I said before we are still awaiting the Government response to the consultation on all aspects of EPCs.

You need to read the consultation paper to find the answers to your questions. It is at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/946175/prs-consultation-2020.pdf
