Shropshire Council

Corporate Climate Change Strategy

Our Corporate Climate Change Strategy brings together council policies and specific actions to help mitigate and adapt to climate change, and to ensure a sustainable future for the county.

A key aim of the strategy is to help develop a collective council response, and to harness all existing activity and strategies. This is essential to ensure all services know they have a vital role to play in addressing climate change issues, and communicating collective action is far more effective.

“Securing our future, whilst meeting our present needs – working together to balance social, environmental and economic needs”

The strategy has three main objectives:

  • To mitigate the effects of climate change through carbon reduction of our services
  • To adapt services and their delivery to respond to changes in the climate
  • To promote sustainable practices via all services
