Services > Local Authority
Local Authorities have a diverse range of drivers reflected in a multitude of targets.
This includes working towards an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 and increasing renewable energy generation in line with the UK Renewable energy roadmap, alongside objectives to further increase waste recycling and diversion from landfill. These improvements are increasingly wrapped up in the sustainable procurement commitment brought in through the Social Value Act (2012).
But the back drop of budget cuts and increases in energy and front line service costs can often make it difficult to know where to focus limited Officer resourced.
WRM has strategic, technical and practical delivery expertise that can support local authorities to develop and deliver low and zero carbon opportunities with maximum social and financial value.
