Climate Change

Tackling climate change is one of the major challenges for the modern world. In 2021 the UK Government released the Net Zero Strategy, outlining the policies and proposals to meet the UK target of reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050. 

Nottinghamshire County Council approved its Corporate Environment Policy Statement and Corporate Environment Strategy in March 2020. Find out more about the Council’s commitment to protecting and enhancing the environment and its action plan setting out activities that must take place to support this. 

We’re making good progress, and since 2014-15 we have already reduced carbon emissions from energy use across our highways and properties by 69%, further information on the activities taken to achieve this can be found on the "what we're doing" tile below.
