PAS 2035 Toolkit Launch
The Midlands Net Zero Hub identified a knowledge gap between the technical standard of PAS 2035 and the operational requirements for implementation by local authorities delivering building retrofit schemes. Given the mandate of PAS 2035 in all public funded projects, the Hub commissioned the MEH-COE LA Toolkit to provide a clear process for all LAs to follow to help facilitate PAS 2035 compliance. The toolkit highlights key steps and points for intervention for local authorities, in order to be a well-informed Funding Client.
To launch the toolkit, we hosted the Midlands Retrofit Toolkit Launch event, which you can watch online if you missed the event.
COP26 Zero Carbon Tour
To highlight the importance of COP26, a UK-wide tour using a 100% electric “Carbon Battle Bus” set out on its journey in London on the 9th June 2021. It travelled around the UK until it reached Glasgow on 31st October 2021. The aim of the tour was to raise awareness of carbon reduction and showcase examples of sustainable action from across the country in the build up to the COP26 event in Glasgow. In the Midlands, the bus stopped to visit Worcester, Birmingham, Nottingham, and Lincoln.
COP26 Regional Roadshows
Regional events took place across the UK during the fortnight of COP. Throughout the fortnight of the COP26 event in Glasgow, we supported four Midlands organisations to host Regional Roadshows to mirror the activity and themes that happened at COP26. These roadshows were an opportunity to showcase local activity and projects to the public, delegations, and investors.
