DECC select CarbonCulture behaviour-change programme

Today an extremely thorough procurement process came to a successful close when the Department of Energy and Climate Change selected More Associates to deliver an innovative programme that brings together realtime information with design-for-behaviour change. The project will create tools to deliver behavioural efficiency in DECC’s London headquarters, and that will have ready application across the Government estate.

DECC’s Whitehall headquarters have benefitted from advanced and sophisticated fabric improvements over recent months, and as DECC treads the path toward diminishing returns on fabric improvments – a path they will eventually be followed on by every other public building in the UK – the question of how to find carbon and cost savings that go beyond technical measures is one that they want to answer today.
