Ashden founder director, Sarah Butler-Sloss, said:  “The latest IPCC reports have shown more clearly than ever before that we need to take urgent, collective action to slow the pace of climate change before it is too late. But while this is a time of great challenge, it is also a time of great opportunity. Ashden winners across the UK are showing that with ingenuity and a range of different approaches, huge progress can be made in building a low-carbon future that delivers many benefits, including improved health and wellbeing as well as creating jobs.”
