RAFT to receive £100,000 grant to roll out their Zero Carbon Action Builder

ASBP member RAFT (Retrofit Action for Tomorrow) is one of five organisations across the UK that will receive £100,000 to boost green measures and reduce carbon emissions in schools.

RAFT will use the £100,000 grant over the coming year to roll out the Zero Carbon Action Builder – an accessible, easy-to-use and scalable platform to help UK schools to act now towards efficient, zero carbon buildings.

Harry Paticas, Managing Director of RAFT: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected by Ashden LetsGoZero, as one of the vital projects they feel will most make a difference in helping schools in their ambitious and challenging decarbonisation journeys.”

“Our new platform will integrate our deep retrofit experience within an accessible, easy-to-use and scalable tool empowering schools and school-estates to move ahead with relevant, practical and outcome-led action. Schools will be encouraged throughout to tell their stories and share knowledge to inspire wider change.”

RAFT has been selected alongside four other high-impact winners: Eco-Schools: Count Your Carbon Playground; Shropshire Good Food Partnership: School Food Web Climate Action; Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK): Fund The Future, Teach The Future; and Brighton & Hove City Council: Our Schools Our World.

The announcement by Let’s Go Zero – the campaign uniting schools across the UK to be zero carbon by 2030 – comes as schools are being given a higher focus by policymakers for being ‘the change we want to see’ in communities finding ways to be more energy efficient, nature-friendly and on the road to zero carbon.
