Helping people to live, work and travel more sustainably

The national target of net zero by 2050 places a responsibility on all public sector bodies to achieve behavioural change within their communities. In particular, local authorities and transport providers are looking to seize the opportunity to put place and travel at the forefront of the UK’s journey towards sustainability.

We know this is no small undertaking, involving meticulous planning and complex project management, working with expert, innovative partners to achieve the required reduction in emissions. That’s where we can help.  We’re equally committed to achieving net zero by supporting local authorities to provide more energy efficient places to live and work, as well as helping transport providers to deliver greener travel.

At Capita, we put the citizen at the core of carbon neutrality. We can help you to achieve your net zero goals by using funding, infrastructure, technology, digital and automation to do things differently and really make a difference.

Report: How local authorities and transport providers can drive sustainable behaviours

A year on from the launch of the government’s net zero strategy, our research has found that the public is still confused about who’s responsible for implementing carbon reduction measures and the support available at a local and national level.


  • 71% of citizens are not aware of their local council’s net zero targets
  • 45% of 18-24 year olds don’t recognise the role of transport providers in delivering net zero goals
  • 57% are not aware of their local council doing anything to reduce the area’s carbon footprint


Read our exclusive report to find out how you can keep people informed and engaged with the progress you’re making to help clear up the net zero confusion.
