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
