Climate Emergency and Environment
The recent COP26 meeting in Glasgow in November 2021 brought home graphically the need for wide-ranging global action to address dangerous and accelerating climate change. Local government - as well as national – is a key element of the response, and district councils have a crucial role to play both in reducing their own organisational emissions as well as the wider emissions occurring from within the districts they serve.
North Norfolk was the first district council in Norfolk to declare a climate emergency in early 2019. Since then the Council has set a Net-Zero emissions target for 2030. In this, our first, Net-Zero Strategy and Action Plan we outline how we propose to achieve this target as well as providing a breakdown of our carbon emissions from the last three years.
Find out more information on how we are working with our communities to improve the biodiversity of our district and absorb excess carbon whilst doing it.
We’ve launched our pledge to have Net-Zero emissions by 2030 and lead North Norfolk into a greener future.
