Martyn Broadest, Director of Home at Connect Housing, has been appointed to the newly formed Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission. The Commission aims to address the climate challenges that are faced in Yorkshire and the Humber, in the largest regional Climate Commission in the UK.
Joining a wealth of talent and experience, Martyn brings 30 years’ experience of working across the private, public and independent housing sectors, and of being at the forefront of promoting social housing’s contribution to addressing the climate emergency in West Yorkshire.
Mr Broadest said:
The Commission’s focus will be on reducing carbon emissions as quickly as possible, and ensuring people in Yorkshire are prepared to cope with the impacts of climate change, such as flooding, heatwaves and sea level rise.
Promoting its goals in a positive, constructive and evidence-based way, the Commission has stated that they want no-one and nowhere to be left out or left behind.
By operating at the regional scale, the Commission will support local actions whilst also promoting Yorkshire and the Humber in national and international circles.
