Centre for Alternative Technology

CAT’s mission is to inspire, inform and enable humanity to respond to the climate and biodiversity emergency.

CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain research clearly demonstrates that we already have all the technologies we need to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050 – or even earlier.

For five decades CAT has inspired, informed and enabled people to achieve practical solutions for sustainability.

Founded in 1973 on a disused slate quarry in Mid Wales, CAT has evolved from a community to a visitor centre to an educational charity specialising in sharing practical solutions for sustainability.
