Climate change

In July 2019, Members acknowledged the threat of climate change and passed a motion committing the Council to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. On 20th July 2023, a new motion reaffirming the climate emergency declaration and bringing the date forward to 2040, was passed.

The Council's climate change strategy has been revised and an interim action plan is in place while we develop the actions that will be needed to meet our new target. 

We are also members of the Tees Valley Combined Authority, has its own region-wide net zero strategy.

We have produced an infographic for communities to share, explaining what climate change is and what action can be taken locally.
