Climate Local is a new initiative – led by local government for local government – to drive, inspire and support council action on carbon reduction and climate resilience.
It succeeds the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change and offers a framework that can reflect local priorities and opportunities for action. It supports councils' efforts both to reduce carbon emissions and to improve their resilience to the anticipated changes in the climate.
Getting involved in Climate Local will help councils across the country to capture the opportunities and benefits of action on a changing climate, through saving on their energy bills, generating income from renewable energy, attracting new jobs and investment in ‘green' industries, reducing flood risks and managing the impacts of extreme weather.
