Climate Change & Energy Security Framework

Last night, the Council Cabinet signed off the new Climate Change & Energy Security Framework. This lays out, in outline, the approach that the Council will be taking over the ten years with regard to reducing carbon emissions and responding to the peak oil agenda. It includes 20 strategic approaches that we will be pursuing, linked to 40 actions that will be taking place during the 2010/11 year.

Council officers need a big pat on the back for getting something so impressive and wide-ranging together so quickly (two months basically) - however, now the real work begins in actually making it all happen. There are lots of big challenges to overcome, especially in a time of financial uncertainty and strong constraints.

The Framework can be found as part of the Cabinet papers - click on the link to item 8 on the agenda. The most interesting bit - from my perspective - is Appendix 2.
