Focusing on climate change, this chapter outlines how the topic has gained increasing importance on the political agenda and explores the role of public service organisations as actors. Climate change and the progressing energy transition calls for all actors, including public services, to change the way they operate and work around their goals. In this evolving context and disruptive reality, public services are active actors of change. This chapter demonstrates how public services use their multiple competences and policy tools, agenda-/g oals-setting, policy formulation and policy implementation. It secondly explores further avenues of upscaling climate action, such as increasing climate and energy ambition, intensification of the conversion of operations away from fossil fuels and towards clean energy, and different employment structures. Third, this chapter showcases how taking this direction chimes with increasing demand and a more favourable political, economic and social environment for a climate-s ensitive modus operandi of public services.
