Leicester City Council
Leicester City Council has committed to achieving a 50% reduction in the city’s CO2 emissions by 2025. This will be achieved through a variety of strategies, including reducing emissions from local businesses, homes, transportation and the council’s own operations. Businesses have a big part to play in achieving this goal, as their activities account for 48.3% of Leicester’s total CO2 emissions. Leicester City Council are working with existing businesses to help them reduce their energy use, as well as encouraging local investment in the low carbon economy.
