Through effective partnership working we will achieve your decarbonisation goals.

“Together with Fortem we are carrying out one of the biggest home insulation programmes in the UK.  Thanks to this partnership, our tenants have warmer, more comfortable, and healthier homes. And, very importantly in the current cost-of-living crisis, the properties are more energy efficient, which helps to save money on fuel bills. Fortem has been working with the council since 2015 and is helping us to deliver other aspects of our wider Affordable Warmth Strategy.”
