Title: Carbon Assessment and Reduction in Regeneration Areas
CARRA addressed climate change locally via an area-based approach. It developed a budget of CO2 emissions for the deprived regeneration area in London. Five action projects were developed and implemented. Each linked climate change to energy use and regeneration issues. With the implementation of the projects, together with CARRA’s overall impact, the reviewed baseline figure at the end of the project showed a 2.1% reduction in overall emissions from the initial baseline.
