Working with councils and community groups across the UK to make sustainable towns and cities a reality.
Tools for councils
Resources & insights
Taking on the UK’s biggest climate challenges is about more than lowering emissions. Upgrading our draughty homes fights fuel poverty and creates new jobs, while nurturing parks and forests protects us from extreme weather, and helps people stay fit and healthy. And by making sure climate action is inclusive, it unites communities and fights inequality.
That’s why we work with councils and communities right across the country. They are experts in their place, and so are well equipped to develop equitable and targeted climate solutions which work for them.
We help them access the support, knowledge, funding and connections they need to go faster – to charge up the best climate innovation and make sure its benefits are reaching the most marginalised groups and communities.
