Net zero

Green living Leicestershire

Logo: Green living Leicestershire

Green Living Leicestershire is a partnership between Leicestershire councils to deliver projects supporting sustainability and net zero - the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible.

Green Living Leicestershire partnership members are:

  • Blaby District Council
  • Charnwood Borough Council
  • Harborough District Council
  • Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
  • Leicestershire County Council
  • Melton Borough Council
  • North West Leicestershire District Council
  • Oadby & Wigston Borough Council

The partnership works together on projects which support delivery of objectives in relation to environmental protection and improvement, including energy efficiency, carbon reduction, climate adaptation and resilience, nature recovery and resource efficiency, sustainable transport, circular economy and community engagement.

Projects run by the Green Living Leicestershire partnership may include all or a group of the above local councils.

All members have signed the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact. The success of the pact depends on residents, businesses, local councils and other organisations in the county all working together. The pact calls upon organisations and groups across the county to sign the pact and play their part in combating climate change and ecological decline.

Partnership projects to date:

  • Sustainable Warmth, the provision of grant funding to private residents to improve the energy efficiency of their homes
  • Solar Together, a group buying scheme for solar panels (2022)

Current projects:

  • Solar Together, a second group buying scheme for solar panels
  • Home Upgrade Grant, the provision of grant funding to private residents to improve the energy efficiency of homes that do not have mains gas as the primary heating system

Net zero toolkit

The net zero toolkit (leicestershirecommunities.org.uk) aims to provide a starting point for town, parish councils and community groups to address net zero in their local community. It has been developed in partnership with Green Living Leicestershire and aligns to the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact.
