One to one support
Project managing your carbon reduction programme
The Carbon Resilience Company can support your organisation in programme management to deliver on your climate emergency or net-zero aspirations. Our team have experience of delivering building fabric measures such as cavity wall and loft insulation, voltage optimisation, LED lighting, multi-site automatic meter read installations as well as renewable energy installations for wind and solar. We use accredited installers or can work with your agreed contractors to project manage your carbon reduction programme.
Adopting an inclusive approach to decision making through citizens' assemblies
An approach that is similar to participatory budgeting.
Citizen assemblies offer an approach to tackle potentially tough decisions while bringing communities or staff along with you.
A range of experts will present their case on a chosen topic (Ireland used this approach prior to legalising gay marriage and abortion). Citizens are selected though a process of randomised sortition representing a range of demographics or alternatively whoever is at your event (peoples assembly). They are then able to ask questions of the panel and deliberate. Typically carried out over a few weeks or can be shorter and more intense.
The three pillars of a citizens assembly are
Trust the process
You can watch a short video here of a Peoples Assembly in action from the October 2019 Extinction Rebellion protest at Trafalgar Square which George Monbiot chaired.
Supporting you online or face-to-face at our carbon clinic
You set the time and can prep the session with your key issues. Sessions are typically an hour and can be on the phone or via zoom video call. This is an opportunity to drill down into specific issues or discuss a range of ideas.
If an hour at the climate clinic is not enough you can book a half day site visit to support your staff climate emergency awareness event or carry out a carbon reduction opportunities assessment.

Achieving carbon neutral (net-zero) status for your business, service or event
Delivering on customer or corporate objectives to be a net zero or carbon neutral business has multiple benefits.
Meet customer, stakeholder, industry and legal expectations
Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and quantify your carbon footprint
Identify areas of inefficiency and improve overall performance
Make cost savings by reducing energy consumption and bills
Gain credibility with an accurate carbon neutrality statement
At the climate resilience company we offer the PAS 2060 validation for net-zero carbon neutrality. This approach has been used by companies like M&S as a transparent approach to demonstrating climate commitment.
Developing a Decarbonsiation Plan
A Decarbonisation Plan will typically be a five or ten year plan with a commitment to reduce an organisations carbon emissions. For example at the local authority level the most common target is net zero by 2030, against a baseline year, for direct emissions from corporate sources. The decarbonisation plan could also outline how measures taken in the next 5-10 years would support 2050 net zero ambitions. There are specific steps involved:
Define and baseline current carbon emissions sources
Assess technical and behavioural opportunities to reduce those emissions
Financing and payback with respect to monetary and emissions reduction
Off-set or carbon removal strategy
Annual monitoring and reporting
Our team has a huge amount of experience in working with organisations to produce realistic yet challenging climate action plans as well as identifying sources of funding.
