The Ashden Climate Action Co-Benefits Toolkit helps local authorities build the business case for climate action.
It lays out how lowering emissions also creates improved health, social equality, thriving economies and community resilience. These wider benefits engage citizens in climate action – boosting public support for further change.
The toolkit features case studies, region-specific data, and links to a wide range of resources, including reports and videos.
You can download our most recent chapter on citizen engagement here and the full toolkit below.
Our list of 31 climate actions – all quantified in terms of likely carbon savings, approximate cost and co-benefits – helps councils choose the right interventions for their communities. They also point to examples of best practice around the UK. The actions were co-developed by Ashden, Friends of the Earth and CDP.
