How we support the public sector

We've worked successfully with almost all of Scotland's local authorities, the NHS, universities and colleges, and government and its agencies. This experience has enabled us to create a collection of approaches to help organisations identify, prioritise, plan and implement energy and cost-saving projects. 

We provide carbon reduction services specifically designed to meet the needs of the public sector. We work with organisations, individually and collectively, providing advice and implementation support and convening key stakeholders to deliver real carbon savings. We identify and share best practice through technical training events and networking forums. Where opportunities for collaboration arise, we bring together organisations to maximise funding and resources. We help to embed carbon management within corporate policy by understanding and working with public sector organisations at all levels in Scotland.
