About the Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust is a world-leading organisation helping businesses, governments and the public sector to accelerate the move to a sustainable, low carbon economy through carbon reduction, energy-saving strategies and commercialising low carbon technologies.

We believe that the move to energy efficiency and real carbon reductions brings big opportunities for organisations of all sizes and sector.
