Action Scorecards 2023

Buildings & Heating & Green Skills (CA)

Buildings and Heating is one of the biggest sectors of carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Combined Authorities do not own council homes or have direct involvement with homeowners. Instead, they lead on adult education in their area, as well as economic growth so have an opportunity to influence the Green Skills needed for low carbon buildings and heating.
