In addition, the report found that addressing the #ClimateCrisis has surfaced as a far higher priority for #authorities than noted in previous waste efficiency reports. View the report here: https://t.co/EgRNEg82p8
This figure includes charging for non-statutory services such as green collection. The report found securing savings remains a driver for local authorities to achieve efficiencies whilst maintaining high-quality public services, and performance enhancement wherever possible.
The 9th regional review for #waste management #efficiencies in the #SouthWest has is now published "Delivering Waste efficiencies in the South West" found innovation in the South West delivered savings & generated income in excess of £22 million p/a. 👇 https://t.co/NzqNoVbRKM

RT @HuwRussell At @LP_localgov we’re coming up with ways to raise funds for the #Coronavirus @UNICEF_uk appeal - I’ve committed to donate 25p for every km I run in 2020. @Strava tells me that I’m up to 101km so far! 🏃🏼♂️
RT @themjcouk A Re:fit Energy Performance Contract provides the opportunity for local and combined authorities to kick off their pathway to net-zero by implementing and accelerating energy efficiency measures, says @LP_localgov director Rachel Toresen-Owuor. https://t.co/gxjRpKh3gt
Our #CSR team hosted our first #VirtualPubQuiz last night to raise money for @UNICEF and help children affected by #Coronavirus. We had a whopping 20 family teams on board - sadly they couldn't fit on the screen! #Fundraising #StayHomeSaveLives
We are already providing advice and support to councils especially where public service provision is outsourced. We are also supporting a significant number of infrastructure-related projects that are delivered through the #PrivateFinanceInitiative.
We are doing everything we can to provide support to hard-working colleagues in the #publicsector. We have received a number of enquiries in relation to the complex contracting landscape that has been affected by the #COVID19 outbreak.
RT @themjcouk Rachel Toresen-Owuor @LP_localgov says that when developing climate response action plans, a programme of works delivered through a Re:fit Energy Performance Contract offers a tangible first step with rapid impacts. https://t.co/NzphF43A00 #localgov

RT @LGA_Independent In non-coronavirus news for a moment, this is an interesting piece on carbon off-setting and sequestration. If you’re not aware of @LP_localgov work to help councils respond to the climate emergency, it’s definitely worth taking a look https://t.co/iAMa0aiLkU
