Facilitating knowledge sharing on energy and environmental management in the UK public sector

Submitted by Salix on Wed, 24/06/2020 - 12:53

Public sector organisations across England, Scotland and Wales are driving and implementing change across the UK and jointly facing the challenge of delivering sustainable carbon reduction.

Many organisations such as local authorities, the NHS and the education sector are leading by example and taking a holistic approach to energy efficiency by implementing multiple carbon-saving measures across their estates.

These projects can come with their challenges, with areas such as knowledge, expertise and funding often presenting themselves as a barrier.

With the UK beginning to think about their post-COVID green recovery, and public sector organisations working hard to maintain their climate action strategies, supporting knowledge sharing in the environmental and energy sectors has never been more important.

Salix helps to facilitate conversations, showcase best practice case study examples, and share experiences of implementing multiple carbon reduction projects through a free knowledge-sharing hub, an online forum full of helpful information and resources to support the delivery of future projects.

The Public Sector Network

Resources such as the Public Sector Network, an online network re-launched in 2019 by the Carbon Trust in partnership with Salix, are also available to support information circulation and facilitate conversations around the topic of climate change action.

The network provides users with an innovative, sustainability-focused platform to support knowledge sharing and collaboration, delivering easily accessible information and engaging content within a range of topics, contributing to the wider green agenda and supporting the public sector in the reduction of its carbon footprint.

The online network operates exclusively for public sector professionals, where users can share their questions, knowledge, and experience surrounding all aspects of energy and environmental management, as well as a number of other sustainability issues.
