Climate Change Strategy

The Climate Change Strategy 2018-2022 sets out the Council’s aim of influencing and empowering residents, community groups, schools and businesses in the Borough to help them to mitigate climate change by reducing their carbon emissions and also aims to implement carbon reduction projects to reduce the carbon emissions of its own buildings.

The Council will work to increase the resilience and capacity of the Council’s services to a changing climate and will support the residents and businesses of the Borough to adapt to climate change by helping them to prepare and increase their resilience to the possible impacts of climate change.

It recognises that specific actions are needed to address different climate change issues. The Climate Change Strategy is based around three themes:  

  • raising awareness
  • reducing our impact on climate change
  • resilience
