Our Action

Current Activity

Our current activities include:

  • Smart Savings

    With one of the UK’s leading tech entrepreneurs, we are developing a free smart way you can pledge, measure and reduce your carbon emissions and energy consumption, saving money in the process. The project is aimed initially at SMEs with less than 50 employees, with Eastbourne being the first UK pilot.

  • Remote Working & Alternative trasport

    We’re encouraging employers and staff to leave the car at home at least once per week, and find an alternative way to get to work.

  • Zero Carbon Deliveries

    In partnership with TechResort CIC, we are working to create a zero carbon delivery options, using electric cargo bikes or vehicles, that can further reduce carbon emissions across the town.
