Climate Emergency and Environment

North Norfolk District Council declared a climate emergency in early 2019. The Council has since produced an Environmental Charter in consultation with local residents and adopted a Strategy and Action Plan to achieve Net-Zero emissions across its operations by 2030.

In the sections below, you can find information on our Net-Zero Strategy and Action Plan, Environmental Charter and reports on our progress, as well as other Council initiatives to help tackle climate change across our district and involve local residents.
