We are reporting on our approach and experiences as a tool to share learning.

We have also explored and benefited from the valuable experience of other organisations with ambitious carbon reduction programmes, which could benefit others.

Through sharing our approach and experience we aim to encourage further decarbonisation in Wales.


A series of materials are in production to support sharing our approach, including:

Commissioned reports


The publications were launched and our experience shared through a series of external events including a joint event with Welsh Government and the Future Generations Commissioner for public sector leaders in February 2018, and two technical events aimed at public sector practitioners.

Case studies

We delivered a suite of demonstration projects in four areas of our business to show how our carbon impact can be reduced.

The case studies summarise how the demonstration projects were carried out, their outcome, and the learning we gained that might be helpful for others.
