Carbon Neutral by 2050
Written by Hitmix Local News on 11 February 2021
Plans to transform Staffordshire into a carbon neutral county council by 2050 have been revealed.
The Climate Change Framework, which’ll be discussed by Cabinet next week, sets out the steps the authority will take to reduce its carbon footprint over the next 30 years.
New measures include switching to green electricity, reducing vehicle emissions, taking action to reduce waste, increasing sustainable travel, and help to prevent and mitigate flooding.
The authority has also committed 600,000 pounds over the next year to push forward the climate change agenda, and a further 2 million up to 2024/25.
