Carbon Positive project

Becoming an exemplar in carbon management and sharing best practice for use across the public sector

The Carbon Positive Project is funded by Welsh Government to show leadership in how the public sector can reduce its carbon impact to tackle climate change.

We're taking positive steps to reduce our carbon emissions, and to enhance and protect carbon stored on the land we manage.

Through sharing our experiences we aim to encourage further decarbonisation in Wales.
