Climate literacy accreditation

The council has recently been awarded a Silver award from the Carbon Literacy Trust. 

Carbon literacy is 'an awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.' Carbon literacy training allows us to further embed green thinking into our plans and policies moving forward.
