Climate Change Strategy
Our Climate Change Strategy assembles policies and actions to help mitigate and adapt to climate change, ensuring a sustainable future for the county. It develops a collective council response to harness all existing activity. This is essential to ensure that all services play a vital role in addressing climate change and communicating collective action.
“Securing our future, whilst meeting our present needs – working together to balance social, environmental and economic needs”
The strategy has three main objectives as a route map to zero carbon:
- Mitigate the causes of climate change through carbon reduction of our services
- Adapt services and their delivery to respond to changes in the climate
- Promote sustainable practices via all services
