In 2019, we declared a Climate Emergency and set a target of net-zero for North Lanarkshire by 2030. Tackling and preventing further climate change is important to us all.
As a public sector body, the council has an important role in the reduction of greenhouse gases in North Lanarkshire as well as making sure we are climate-ready and acting as sustainably as we can.
The Climate Plan ACT2030 is the first of a series of climate-related documents to be published that encompasses the council’s own climate emergency declaration and its target of net-zero emissions by 2030. In it you will find information on:
- The climate and biodiversity emergency
- North Lanarkshire and its emissions
- Planned policy that will facilitate area emission reductions
- North Lanarkshire Council emissions, its specific targets and carbon management
- Next steps
