A greener future
We have been actively working on the climate change agenda for the past decade. During this time, we have taken huge steps forward in changing attitudes.
We want to inspire, drive and support our communities to address the challenges of the climate emergency, working in partnership to achieve real change.
Declaring a climate emergency
The council declared a climate emergency in June 2019 and resolved by that 2030 it would be carbon neutral in its operations and activities. We also approved our Green Energy Strategy in September 2019. With this in mind, our priorities are now to:
- Achieve sustainability in all our operations
- Reduce fuel poverty
- Improve security of energy supply
- Create regeneration and economic growth, generating income to fund green investments
