Greenhouse gas emissions

The Climate Change Act 2008 requires the United Kingdom to reduce its carbon emissions. The target is at least an 80% reduction by 2050 against a 1990 baseline. 

Councils have a pivotal role to play when it comes to achieving this goal. We understand the importance of our role and have made a public commitment to help tackle climate change.
