CarbonCulture launches at seven Whitehall Departments

CarbonCulture is a new initiative started by More Associates for organisations that want to get really good at saving energy and carbon. Structured as a social enterprise, CarbonCulture exists to help all its members find the best 'moves' they can make to save energy and carbon.

CarbonCulture will spread that knowledge amongst the membership so we can all get better at saving as quickly and as cheaply as possible. We've been working for some time with pioneers DECC and Defra to design strategies to achieve initial savings.

After months of work, the first organisations to sign up launched with CarbonCulture's debut tool last week - an easy-to-use reporting tool to allow members to show the public their present energy and carbon practices. These are some of the most progressive Government departments – from HM Treasury to the Cabinet Office.

Shortly, new tools will be offered to members that will help to identify and drive new savings. CarbonCulture will be providing some amazing tools to help to do this in the coming weeks and months. If your organisation would like to get involved, send an email to membership@carbonculture.net.
