The Carbon Trust Scotland Public Sector Conference
Thu 8 June 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
A dedicated Conference for Public Sector organisations in Scotland (and those in the north of England with ready access to Glasgow), for knowledge-sharing, solution-showcasing and peer-to-peer networking.
The public sector has been at the vanguard of Scotland’s commitment to cutting carbon and delivering national targets. It directly employs almost a quarter of the Scottish workforce – over half a million people. It also has a huge potential influence over buildings, infrastructure, the private sector and local communities. The Scottish Government has adopted ambitious targets for the reduction of carbon emissions that require substantial contributions from all sectors of the economy. The Carbon Trust are focused on supporting the Scottish Public Sector to meet these targets, addressing challenges and providing solutions, innovations and best practice.
We will again be holding our second dedicated Conference for the Scottish Public Sector in June 2017. This event will be an excellent opportunity for managers and practitioners in public sector organisations with responsibility for energy, environment, sustainability and/or estates and asset management. It is set to be a practical knowledge-sharing, solution-showcasing and peer-to-peer networking event, with delegates from across the Scottish public sector community and beyond, including local authorities, universities and colleges, the NHS, government departments and agencies, housing associations and more.
The conference agenda will feature real, practical examples of solutions that delegates can apply to their own challenges. An invaluable opportunity to network with colleagues from across the public sector, this Conference will enable you to tailor your own agenda through a choice of plenary and workshop sessions. Topics to be covered at our 2017 Scottish Public Sector conference will be announced in due course.
Topics from last year's conference included:
- Implementing Low Carbon Technology: feasibility, specification and procurement of energy efficiency and low carbon technologies such as energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling, CHP, renewable heat and electricity, building fabric, building controls, and more; working with the private sector to secure best value and future-proofed solutions.
- Local & Community Energy: harnessing the power of local government and public bodies to deliver decentralised energy, including alternative heat sources (e.g. heat pumps, waste heat); managing/mitigating risks to public service delivery.
- Climate Change Reporting and Carbon Management Activity: turning the new Scottish public sector mandatory reporting requirements in to an opportunity for progressing successful carbon management in your organisation.
- Engaging employees and communities: reaching and engaging staff, citizens, students, patients, and public service users to achieve efficiencies and carbon reduction.
Speakers will be drawn from the public sector, thought leaders and academia.
