It wasn't green energy rules that lead to this cladding being fitted.
According to the people in the block the cladding was mostly fitted to make it look more attractive on the eye for the rich people who had views of the place.
The green energy insulation cladding has much more stringent fire safety regulations than whatever this stuff was they used.
