With no clear data on how many buildings are council-owned, and one recommendation from the report to engage with local businesses on commercial building retrofit and explore tax-based incentives, we believe we can act as a bridge between the Council and the community to achieve its goals.
These projects are important in Croydon because, despite the initial engagement from Steve Reed MP back in 2017, no community energy group has been successfully set up in the borough. We want to help educate and empower our community to reduce carbon emissions, particularly those not already engaged with environmental activism.
Engaging with the local Council has been our toughest endeavour due to their lack of knowledge and finances. Working with other groups like BME Forums, disability groups and more is also key to building partnerships. We can push through in other ways and keep up the good fight!
