ETL launch Net Zero Carbon Delivery Framework to support public sector bodies in reaching net zero
Today ETL, a multidisciplinary consultancy, formally announce the launch of its new Net Zero Carbon Delivery Procurement Framework to support public sector bodies in their bid to reduce carbon emissions in line with legislative and sector-led reduction targets.
The Net Zero Carbon Delivery Framework is free to access and provides a model for public sector bodies to follow when looking to implement low/zero carbon technologies. Alexandra Hammond, Sustainability Director at ETL explains; “Our new framework acts as a one-stop solution for public organisations as it encompasses a range of suppliers offering low and zero carbon technology solutions, all under one model.
“Most public sector organisations have targets ahead of 2050 to reach net zero, but procuring holistic technological solutions can be challenging and time consuming. This Framework simplifies the process and is fully compliant, so no organisation is left in the dark.”
Following heightened priorities surrounding a green recovery, climate emergency declarations and net zero commitments, the Framework responds to market demand for delivering low/zero carbon solutions across public sector estates and services.
"This Framework simplifies the process and is fully compliant, so no organisation is left in the dark."
The Framework will also assist public sector organisations to meet the criteria that are necessary to access newly available grant funding from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This grant fund is available to public sector organisations for the delivery of energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation.
With UK public sector bodies obliged to achieve net-zero by 2050, ETL’s new framework along with the BEIS grant fund are steppingstones to achieving key sustainability goals.
