Warwickshire's plans to combat climate change take a step forward

Rugby Editorial 18th Nov, 2023   0

WARWICKSHIRE’S plan to fight climate change has been green-lit by the County Council.

Warwickshire County Council’s (WCC) Cabinet has approved the Sustainable Futures Strategy and its supporting delivery plan.

The Strategy details how the Council will work with the community, business and other partner organisations to mitigate climate change and work towards fulfilling the county’s net zero commitments.

It covers subjects such as transport, the built environment, energy, biodiversity, waste, communities and skills, and is based around the themes of transport; built environment and energy; resources, waste and material recirculation; sustainable communities and green economy; and natural capital and biodiversity.

WCC’s Environment, Climate and Culture spokeswoman Coun Heather Timms said: “The Strategy supports our commitment to reducing our own emissions to net zero by 2030, and to supporting the entire county to do the same by 2050.

“We were very pleased to see that the final Strategy comes complete with delivery plans which set out how we will begin to achieve each of the key aims.

“The input of the expert panels has refined the Strategy previously brought to Cabinet and strengthened the base from which we can make lasting and sustainable changes that will help our economy and give our county’s workforce the skills needed to make a thriving Warwickshire that is net zero.

“We always said that we are all in this together and Cabinet is pleased to endorse a Strategy that provides a clear framework and objectives for how that will actually work.”
