Staffordshire’s carbon neutral plans agreed
Plans to transform Staffordshire into a carbon neutral county council by 2050 have been agreed.
The county council’s Climate Change Framework, which was agreed by cabinet, sets out the steps the authority will take to reduce its carbon footprint over the next 30 years.
It builds on actions taken by the authority over the last 10 years to address climate change, such as replacing streetlights so they are more energy efficient, reducing business mileage and creating energy from waste.
New measures featured in the framework include switching to green electricity, reducing vehicle emissions, taking action to reduce waste, increasing sustainable travel, and help to prevent and mitigate flooding.
