Energy Savings Trust
Issue 2 | July 2008
By 2010 the Government has set itself the target of reducing CO2 emissions by 20%. Getting people who live in Housing Associations and Council Houses to make small changes in their homes could go a long way to meeting that target. Empowering tenants through housing association representatives was seen as an obvious way to reach the tenants.
The Tenant Empowerment Training Toolkit is an inspiring way to get the message across - because it doesn't just educate them about CO2 emissions, but includes information and practical tips on how to be more energy efficient, saving them money and making their homes more comfortable. The aim of this campaign was to encourage housing associations to contribute to the Government's CO2 reduction targets, by getting their representatives to send for a toolkit to help educate their tenants about energy efficiency in the home.
