9.30am to 1.30pm
Primarily intended for local authorities, but also open to the wider UK public sector audience.
Free for public sector
More than half of the UK’s local authorities have now declared that we are facing a climate emergency, making this one of the fastest growing environmental movements in recent history.
With the UK’s new legally binding net zero target, local authorities now have a real opportunity to take the lead on carbon emissions reduction. They can only do this by treating it as an urgent strategic priority, translating the declaration of climate emergency into a tangible and practical emergency response.
The aim of this interactive workshop is to discuss how local authorities can move from climate emergency declaration to action. We will outline the Carbon Trust’s framework for action on climate change mitigation and adaptation at the local level.
The session will deep dive into some of the key aspects of developing a Climate Action Plan, both for the local authority estate and the wider geographic area that they represent. The session will also provide attendees with the opportunity to network, share experiences and best practice.
The workshop will feature experts from the Carbon Trust’s Cities & Regions team and is primarily intended for local authorities, but also open to the wider UK public sector audience.
Please note, this event is for Public Sector representatives only. The Carbon Trust reserve the right to decline unsuitable registrations in order to ensure an appropriate audience at the event.
