Local Authorities

Climate Change Strategy

".......And to those who say this is insignificant, remember this: the UK's public sector has a bigger carbon footprint than the entire waste industry; if we do this, we'll cut the Government's energy bills by hundreds of millions of pounds." David Cameron, 2010

Envos can provide a full analysis of local authority energy usage. We can advise on pursuing a Carbon Neutral approach to services and activities within the local authority area.
The local development framework can be utilised to promote sustainability across the local authority. For example, by using planning regulations to reduce carbon emissions in new property developments.

Local authorities can therefore be very influential in renewing energy infrastructure through planning and development regulations and through their ownership and management of public land and property.

The cost of implementing policies to reduce the waste of resources can be self-funding and can therefore reduce the claims on local authority budgets.
