Tackling the impact of climate change in Charnwood 2014-2017

Climate Local helps us to better understand the benefits of tackling climate change. They address the risks and pursue the opportunities presented by a changing climate, in line with local priorities, through their role as:

Community Leader – helping local people and businesses to be smarter about their energy use and prepare for climate impacts

Service Provider – delivering services that are resource efficient, less carbon intensive, resilient and that protect those who are most vulnerable to climate impacts

Estate Manager - ensuring our own buildings and operations are resource efficient, use clean energy and are well prepared for the impacts of a changing climate.
