Reading Climate Action Network

Low CarbonPlease notice that we are working on a new website at the moment - due for launch in September 2018. This will be easier to browse and for us to keep up to date. The website will also host the updated Reading Climate Change Strategy, which has been reviewed over that last 12 months.

OUR VISION - to build a thriving network of businesses and organisations who will be at the forefront of developing solutions for reducing carbon emissions and preparing for climate change.

RCAN - Reading Climate Action NetworkWhy businesses? 46% of Reading's greenhouse gas emissions come from commercial activity. That's why it's crucial for businesses to be involved in developing solutions, with us, to tackle climate change.
