After we declared a climate emergency in February 2019, we set to work.
In order to reduce North Somerset's carbon emissions, we recognise the need to make significant changes to the way we live, work, and govern. We see these changes as a unique opportunity to improve our quality of life. This, in turn, will create an area that’s healthier, better to live in and fairer for everyone.
In November 2019, we published our first climate emergency strategy and action plan, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across North Somerset and improve our resilience in a changing climate.
Following the successful completion of several projects identified in the original action plan, in November 2022 we adopted a refreshed climate emergency action plan to reflect the next key areas of focus.
Our action plan will be monitored every six months and updated each year.
