The Carbon Trust and Salix Finance are working in partnership to relaunch the Public Sector Network to support information circulation and facilitate conversations around the topic of climate change action.
Both organisations are delighted to respond to the high demand for the network, with a new refreshed design developed to provide users with an innovative, sustainability-focused platform to support knowledge sharing and collaboration. The network will deliver easily accessible information and engaging content within a range of topics, contributing to the wider green agenda and supporting the public sector in the reduction of its carbon footprint.
The online network operates exclusively for public sector professionals, where users can share their questions, knowledge and experience surrounding all aspects of energy and environmental management, as well as a number of other sustainability issues.
The relaunched network’s new dynamic design presents users with various categories covering topics of interest, including; electricity, heat, water, waste, management & reporting, buildings, transport, finance, and jobs. Users can start discussions, comment on existing conversations, create polls, and list relevant events. They can also see trending topics and directly connect to each other in private conversations.
On behalf of Salix Finance and the Carbon Trust, David Reilly, Director of Cities and Regions at the Carbon Trust, said;
"We are delighted to relaunch the Public Sector Network to help bring organisations together to take action on climate change and encourage learnings and experiences to be shared. The Carbon Trust and Salix Finance bring expertise and experience in enabling the UK public sector to deliver on its energy efficiency and environmental ambitions.
“We will use this network to create positive change, reduce emissions, make valuable cost savings and to improve our planet.”
