Climate change now feels very real in the UK with record-breaking heatwaves, as well as droughts and flooding. The country also faces a cost-of-living and energy crisis which, if unaddressed, will lead to devastating poverty and hardship for millions.
But tried and tested solutions to these crises do exist.
We know that by taking a co-benefits approach to tackling the climate emergency, we can create warmer, cheaper to heat homes, thousands of new jobs, improved physical and mental wellbeing in addition to increasing our resilience for what the changing climate will throw at us next.
But to have the greatest impact, we know this work must be delivered at a local level. That is why we bring local authorities and communities across the UK together to share their learning and embed this approach into their climate responses, ensuring we deliver a fast, fair and just transition that leaves no one behind.
We divide our work across four key areas energy efficiency and retrofit; community and citizen engagement; procurement and local wealth building; adaptation and resilience.

Authorities and city-regions shouldn’t face this challenge alone. We know that strong networks are essential for turning bold plans into real-world change. That’s why we’ve created a host of programmes and projects linking councils, climate innovators and local communities. With demand for ‘shovel-ready’ sustainability projects greater than ever, our networks connect policymakers and funders with inspiring examples of proven success, boosting knowledge-sharing and collaboration.
