Low Carbon Homes are recruiting a (volunteer) Content Writer to join their small dynamic team focussed on reducing the carbon impact of our homes.
About Low Carbon Homes
Domestic property energy consumption equates to 14% of UK carbon emissions. Low Carbon Homes exists to reduce this impact and highlight the wider social and economic benefits of retrofitting existing housing. They are a nationwide market-led membership platform for professionals and suppliers to learn, share and showcase best-practice. They aim to unpack the complexities of retrofit-at-scale, reduce confusion and promote action. Unlike centrally-funded programmes, the agenda for Low Carbon Homes is set collaboratively by regional stakeholders – connecting all involved. Their independent approach results in community-led retrofit action plans that support zero-carbon ambitions, reduce fuel poverty and stimulate local low-carbon economies.
