Shropshire Council

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
