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.

As part of our commitment we have developed a strategy and action plan to set out the baseline of our own carbon emissions, to identify the key actions and intervention measures required to meet this commitment and what measures we will take to deal with unavoidable impacts of climate change. 

We are also members of the Tees Valley Combined Authority, which produced a region-wide climate change strategy in 2010.
