IES for Local Authorities 

Map your route to a Fossil Free, Healthy & Resilient Portfolio

Achieve Net Zero Targets

 Many Local Authorities have pledged to become net-zero as early as 2030, promising to exceed the National Government’s target of 2050. Buildings and cities have the potential to make the biggest impact in reducing carbon emissions globally, but the question many are struggling with is ‘how?’ This is where IES can help.
