Net Zero toolkit to help community groups and residents play their part in our Zero Carbon Roadmap

Communities across Leicestershire are being given the chance to play their part in tackling climate change and help Leicestershire become a net zero county.

More support has been made available to parish councils, community groups and residents who want to get involved and make a real difference with the creation of a new easy-to-use toolkit.

The online resource has been developed by the Green Living Leicestershire Partnership, which comprises North West Leicestershire District Council, together with all other Leicestershire district councils and Leicestershire County Council.

The toolkit aims to provide a starting point for Leicestershire groups to address net zero in their local community and aligns to the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact.

Including helpful tips and advice, the toolkit has been designed to help kick-start community action, including guidance on how to identify sources of carbon emissions in their local area, setting clear reduction targets, getting the community involved in supporting initiatives, working with communities and signing up to the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact.

More information about the net zero toolkit can be found on the Leicestershire Communities website.

More information about the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact is available Leicestershire Country Council website.

For those involved with village halls and community buildings - check out the ACRE net zero design guide (published March 2024) which aims to help groups improve the quality and performance of community building by making them more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. It is a simple and practical guide and explains different technology options, sharing practical examples and experiences of halls.
