Leeds city council: inclusion vaccination

At the beginning of the Covid 19 vaccination programme, the emphasis was on vaccinating people most at risk from the virus, as well as frontline workers who were working directly with them. This was mainly older people, but also included clinically extremely vulnerable people too. We were also concerned about communities of interest who were at risk because of social issues and were less likely to access mainstream services.

Enhancing green opportunities for SMEs in North Somerset

North Somerset Council (NSC) are undertaking the development of a roadmap and action plan focusing on measures to support local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to improve energy efficiency and reduce their carbon emissions. As part of the LGA’s Economic Growth Advisers programme, Eunomia Research and Consulting were commissioned to produce a report to assess the carbon emissions by sector as well as the challenges faced by sectors with the highest emissions in achieving net zero. The report would also make recommendations on support programmes that the council can develop to support SMEs reduce their emissions.

Creating Sustainable Manufacturing in Telford & Wrekin

Telford & Wrekin Council are keen to support their manufacturing businesses to become greener. To build growth and prosperity for the long term, the Telford business community needs to be able to access tools and support to enable them to reduce their carbon footprint, localise their supply chains and decarbonise their infrastructure network. By operating sustainably, the Telford & Wrekin manufacturing sector can build resilience to recent variables such as the UK’s net zero ambition and the global desire for sustainable manufacturing. A recommended solution to build resilience is to develop resource efficiency clusters (RECs) in the area.
