To consider the head of policy and programmes’ report.
Cabinet considered the report of the head of policy and programmes, which recommended the approval of a climate action plan. The plan included suggestions made by the Climate Emergency Advisory Committee.
The Cabinet member for climate emergency and the environment reported that the plan was a key delivery vehicle to move the council forward in its climate work, with the overarching aim for the council to become a carbon neutral by 2030. The plan was a ‘live’ document and would be adapted to meet changing circumstances. A quarterly monitoring report would be produced and any further recommendations to update the plan would be made to Cabinet.
Cabinet supported the climate action plan and was pleased to see that many of the actions had already been planned for in the budget.
RESOLVED: to note the development of and approve the Climate Action Plan for adoption and implementation.
