Cumbria Action for Sustainability

Penrith, Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

Our mission is to empower and enable people, communities and businesses to live and work more sustainably by sharing our knowledge, practice, skills, networks and practical experience.


We work across Cumbria to enable individuals, communities, businesses and local authorities to reduce the county’s carbon footprint and bring about a more sustainable way of life here. We aim to reduce people’s carbon footprint across all aspects of life in their area, from energy efficiency in their homes to food growing, transport and community energy.


One of our goals is to create opportunities for people to learn about climate change and how it’s relevant to them, empowering and motivating them to make real changes in their own lives. We want to help Cumbria prepare for the impacts of climate change, while engaging people in actions to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate climate change. We will pro-actively work to ensure that any adaptation projects in Cumbria include elements of emission reduction.
