Help create Calderdale’s Energy Future

Creating a better energy future, and tackling climate change, is important for everyone in Calderdale so we want many more organisations and businesses, policy and decision makers, communities and individuals to get involved. Action is needed now: to make progress every year towards our 2020 carbon target, and to make plans and investments that will reduce energy use and bring other benefits.

If you are a business

Environmental Business Pledge is a free accreditation and advice service for Calderdale businesses. Through the pledge your business can show its environmental commitment to customers, employees and investors.

The Calderdale Carbon Club is a new peer-to-peer network of Calderdale businesses focused on energy and resource efficiency. It provides a forum for sharing issues, solutions, advice and contacts.
