An investigation into the levels of carbon dioxide emitted by the district, has been launched by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).
During a meeting of the full council on Wednesday, 24 July members voted unanimously to establish a cross-party Working Group to assess the district’s existing carbon footprint and to review potential actions that could help limit climate change.
“As a rural district, environmental issues are a top priority and as the new unitary council approaches, it is important that we continue to champion our approach for the benefit of our residents as well as the much wider picture.
“The strength of public opinion on climate change both locally and nationally is clear. We must do our part as a council to address carbon reduction in order to protect the health and wellbeing of future generations.”
The SNC investigation follows the UK Parliament’s declaration of a Climate Emergency and the setting of a new target for the UK to be net carbon zero by 2050.
The council will now form a Working Group of up to 10 members supported by a £25,000 budget made available from the council’s reserves.
The Working Group is tasked with delivering its findings by December 2019.
The council also committed to stepping up its support for the Refill campaign, which aims to reduce the amount of single-use plastic, by providing free water to refill water bottles as well as to encourage local businesses to support the Refill scheme.
