Low Carbon Alliance Celebrates its Commitment the the Real Living Wage

16th July, 2022

Low Carbon Alliance has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Low Carbon Alliance receive a minimum hourly wage of £11.05, significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £9.50 per hour.

Low Carbon Alliance is based in London, a region where nearly a fifth of all jobs (17.2%) pay less than the real Living Wage – around 700,000 jobs. Despite this, Low Carbon Alliance has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 300,000 people and put over £1.6 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.


Samantha Pratt, Head of Operations said: “While we have met the threshold for the London Living Wage since inception, it is wonderful to be able to recognise this publicly by becoming a Living Wage accredited employer.”


Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Low Carbon Alliance has joined the movement of almost 9,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Low Carbon Alliance believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
