What is GAIN?

GAIN has been developed to run alongside Kirklees
Council’s response to the Climate Emergency and to
secure commitment from local businesses to take action on sustainability.

GAIN helps you to become more sustainable through smarter energy and waste management and by bringing businesses together to bulk buy services. As sustainability experts, we can help you plan a complete sustainability strategy and reduce your running costs.

Community Partnerships


We all want to do more to reduce our impact on the environment, become more efficient and spend less on energy. Where better to start than right here on our doorstep?

Carbon-intensive firms are likely to lose 43% of their value thanks to policies designed to combat climate change. Meanwhile the most progressive companies will see an uplift of 33% in their value.*
