A guide to Social Return on Investment /

by Nicholls, Jeremy | Lawlor, Eil s | Nietzert, Eva | Goodspeed, Tim.

Publisher: London, U.K. Cabinet Office of the third sector 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Every day our actions and activities create and destroy value; they change the world around us. Although the value we create goes far beyond what can be captured in financial terms, this is, for the most part, the only type of value that is measured and accounted for. As a result, things that can be bought and sold take on a greater significance and many important things get left out. Decisions made like this may not be as good as they could be as they are based on incomplete information about full impacts. ; A major step towards helping orgnaisations and institutions demonstrate their social, economic and environmental impact has taken place with the launch of a new guide to Social Return on Investment (SROI), backed by the Cabinet Office. This is especially timely when organisations are seeking to make every pound go as far as possible. ; This guide offers a framework for measuring and accounting for a much broader concept of value; it seeks to reduce inequality and environmental degradation and improve wellbeing by incorporating social, environmental and economic costs and benefits.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A Short Guide to Setting Up a City-Scale Retrofit Program /

by Ho, Stacy | Green for All | Rhodes-Conway, Satya.

Publisher: Oakland, CA Green For All 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Buildings represent 38.9% of U.S. primary energy use and 38% of all CO2 emissions in the U.S. Though simple, relatively low-cost measures such as insulation, and lighting upgrades can be done in almost every building to reduce energy use and save money on utility bills, current retrofitting program capacity is limited. Most existing programs are either available only to income-eligible individuals or those with the money up-front to do the work. Furthermore, many current retrofitting programs only create low-wage, short-term jobs rather than providing pathways into sustainable careers in construction and green building.Availability: (1)

by Australia. Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth Government 2010Description: HTML.Notes: WebsiteSummary: Climate change is one of the greatest economic, social, and environmental challenges of our time. Expert scientific evidence confirms that human activity is altering the climate. This is changing rainfall patterns, reducing water availability in Australia and increasing the frequency of severe weather events such as bushfires and storms. The Australian Government takes the challenge of climate change seriously. Our approach is to reduce greenhouse pollution in Australia in the short and long term; work with the international community to develop a global response that is effective and fair and to prepare for the climate change that we cannot avoid. On our website, you ll find information about the actions we are taking. But climate change is a challenge shared by all Australians so our website also includes information about actions householders and industry can take to reduce their carbon pollution.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Building a low carbon economy : implementing the Climate Change Act 2008. /

by HM Treasury.

Publisher: London, U.K. HM Treasury 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Climate Change Act 2008 creates a new approach to managing and responding to climate change in the UK. At the heart of the Act is a legally binding target to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to at least 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050, to be achieved through action at home and abroad. To drive progress towards this target, the Act introduces five year “carbon budgets”, which define the emissions pathway to the 2050 target by limiting the total greenhouse gas emissions allowed in each five year period, beginning in 2008. ; The first three carbon budgets - for 2008-12, 2013-17, and 2018-22 - must be set by 1 June. In setting them, the Government must take into account the advice of the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC) established under the Act to advise the Government on setting carbon budgets and to report to Parliament on the progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The CCC published its first report on 1 December 2008. Budget 2009 and this document provide the Government’s high-level response to that advice.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
