The Low Carbon Economy
This website connects people and businesses with relevant low carbon information, products, services, jobs, business opportunities - and each other
The solutions necessary to make the transition to a Low Carbon Economy already exist however they are not being adopted quickly enough, and part of the reason for this is that access to all relevant information, products, services and business opportunities is not straightforward, and joined up thinking is required. This website enables different types of people with various requirements to understand, connect with, and share information about all the low carbon information and solutions which are relevant for their needs. Please visit the website for more information.
