SWM and Wychavon District Council. This event is part of the West Midlands Low Carbon Economy Programme

Target Audience

Local Authority officers

The event itself


  • To promote successful corporate approaches taken by local authorities to reduce carbon by innovation and the implementation of good practice.
  • To identify carbon reduction opportunities for other local authorities, either individually or collaboratively.


This event is for those officers who would like the latest information on how they can at a corporate level adopt low carbon management plans. We have invited authorities that have recently developed a carbon management plan to talk about their experiences and offer advice. The event is aimed at officers working in areas such as climate change, estates and energy (though any officer is welcome to attend). The event caters for those with relatively little prior knowledge to those with existing knowledge who are interested in alternative approaches. 

The session will cover:

  • Strategic approaches to cutting carbon and costs
  • Embedding technologies into corporate strategy
  • Collaborative low carbon school services
  • Adopting carbon management plans corporately
  • How Local Authorities have benefitted from low carbon plans
