Rutland Forums facilitate collaboration groups of sustainability and energy practitioners, helping members decarbonise their organisations quicker and more cost effectively. All forums meet regularly to collaborate on projects, share best practice, and work closely with the HM Government to develop policies to accelerate the UK’s low carbon transition.
The forums are facilitated by Haydn Young as former Energy and Sustainability Manager, who, after joining the Retail Energy Forum (REF) as a client in 2012, could see the value that collaboration could bring between peers within a sector. Having taken the reins of REF in 2018, Haydn broadened the format to a year-round subscription of meetings and workshops, alongside expanding into new sectors.
The network has grown rapidly and now involves over 300 practitioners from the 70 member organisations and is opening new sectors in the UK and USA.
