The Holme Valley Climate Action Partnership is a charitable organisation helping local people reduce carbon emissions in the Holme Valley with the aim of the area becoming carbon neutral by 2030. This ambition requires a coordinated effort and to achieve it HVCAP are connecting with potential partners from all parts of the community including, voluntary groups, businesses, schools, faith groups, landowners and residents. Together we can share information, help and support one another, source funding and deliver change.
There are over 30 community organisations and businesses linked through the partnership and you can join us and share your ideas for action by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org Current projects include
– helping local community buildings investigate ways to become more energy efficient. Land Mapping
– looking at current land use to work with land-owners and partners to seek innovations and funding for the most sustainable options, balancing economic and environmental needs. Partner Support work
– helping small local organisations with behind the scenes work promoting or delivering aspects of their projects.
Community Engagement and Events – Taking project news out to the community and inviting local people to share views and ideas for new projects. “The work of HVCAP is so important to our not-for-profit organisation as it unites the issue of education and awareness raising around taking action for climate change.” Environmental Projects in Kirklees
