 This Council believes that local action on global warming can make a difference and will be essential. This Council has an obligation to lead, catalyse, support and influence actions by residents, district and borough councils and other partners and businesses in the County. 

To that end, this council resolves to:  

  1. Update its 2012 Carbon Management Plan, considering the recent IPCC* report. This will include the setting of a carbon neutral target for Nottinghamshire County Council, and a governance structure to ensure close monitoring of the plan.


  2. Integrate this commitment into the Nottinghamshire County Council Four Year Plan ‘Your Nottinghamshire Your Future’.


  3. Include an assessment of climate and sustainability impact in all relevant reports to committees.


  4. Communicate this commitment with residents, businesses and all strategic partners across Nottinghamshire, and provide ongoing information to residents about how local action can make a difference.


* Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
