Climate Change

The Government signed the  Climate Change Act 2008 in November 2008. Its aim to create a low-carbon economy and tackle the issue of climate change.

The UK must decrease its overall carbon emissions by:

  •  34% by 2020
  • and by at least 80% by 2050

Compared to levels in 1990.

It also encourages:

  • energy efficiency
  • development of renewable energy
  • aims to secure a low carbon energy supply for the UK.

At a local level we are taking more steps to tackle this issue. We have shown this by signing the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change in 2008.
