Support to fulfill climate emergency declarations and net zero target establishment

SWM has been working with local authorities since its inception in 2002 and has run the West Midlands Public Sector Sustainability and Energy Network since 2009. Along with our in-house experience, we are in a strong position to support local authorities, and other public sector authorities such as NHS Trusts and universities, with their climate emergency declarations and achieving net zero targets. How can you turn these ambitions into actions and projects to affect change?
