Climate and Environment Action Plan

To support the Council’s Climate Emergency declaration, in January 2020 the Council developed a Climate and Environment Strategy, which highlights both the climate and ecological crisis with a supporting interim action plan.

In May 2021 the Climate and Environment Action Plan was updated to reflect the Council’s pathway to carbon neutral for the councils activities aim by 2030 and district aims of carbon neutrality before 2050 and in August 2021 South Derbyshire's "Action Plan for Nature" was approved building on Derbyshire's "Lowlands Biodiversity Action Plan".

What is the Council’s Action Plan?

The Council’s Action Plan is aligned to the Climate and Environment Strategy in which mitigation and adaption is at the core of the action plan to support the Council is carbon neutral by 2030 and the district is carbon neutral before 2050.
