Abstract

It is now widely accepted that there is a need to reduce CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gasses in order to mitigate global climate change. Coupled with this need is the additional challenge of maintaining security and continuity of energy supply and dealing with the problem of resource depletion, in particular peak oil. In response to these needs, the UK government has signalled its intention to move towards a low-carbon economy. This transition will have implications for the productivity and competitiveness of both public and private sector organisations. As a result, there is a need for organisations to prepare for a low carbon future and exploit the opportunities that may arise. The challenge for many is that they often do not possess the internal skills and knowledge to enable them to transition to more sustainable working practices, or exploit new low carbon opportunities.
