UK local authorities look to pool carbon reducing expertise



UK local authorities have a vital role to play in reducing carbon emissions and should work together to pool their expertise and ideas in the area, according to a leading carbon-cutting association.

By promoting sustainable procurement, green technology and their cross-organisational influence, local councils can reduce both their carbon footprint and energy bills, claimed the Carbon Trust.

The association runs a Local Authorities Carbon Management programme, with 143 of the UK''s 468 local authorities having received help and advice from the initiative.

As well as reducing their own carbon footprint, councils can also promote better practice amongst both businesses and the public within their area

Richard Rugg, public sector programme manager at the Carbon Trust, said: "It is important for local authorities to share their carbon saving expertise in a way that will engender positive development across the sector."

"Collaboration provides local authorities with a valuable opportunity to share their experiences of improving carbon management and look ahead to how they can further build on this success," he added.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18368433-ADNFCR
