Reducing your community building’s carbon footprint?


If you’re planning a project to refurbish your community hall with energy-saving improvements, you could learn a lot from speaking to or visiting other people who have done something similar.

Green Networks share real-life examples of energy-saving building improvements.

Members of the Network offer to share their experience through a case study and being available to talk on the phone, exchange emails, or invite visitors.

Of the 13 community buildings on the Green Network, seven received funding from Climate Challenge Fund to put in insulation, secondary glazing, efficient lighting, draughtproofing, solar panels and used this as an example to engage individual householders in the community to reduce their own carbon footprint:

Colintraive Village Hall, Edinbane Community Hall, Gate Church International, Selkirk Parish Church, Stirling Hall at Milton of Campsie Church, Whiting Bay Village Hall, St Bryce Kirk Centre

Find out more about these projects online here on the Green Network for Business (it’s not just businesses!).
