The Community Carbon Reduction (CCR) project is a social enterprise provided by Cambridge Science and Policy Consulting. It provides free expert support to communities in reducing carbon emissions. Our focus is on communities, meaning cities, neighborhoods and individual residential or business complexes, as these are the scales of action where individuals - working together - can have the greatest impact.

The action templates and tools you will find here use the examples of San Diego, California in the US and Cambridge in the UK, as these are the two cities in which we live and the two cities on which our projects Currently focus. But the general approach to carbon reduction can be applied in communities anywhere in the world with a commitment to reducing the risks of climate change.


You can visit our activities either through the following hotlinks or using the horizontal navigation bar.
