So you’ve declared a Climate Emergency. What next?

Charlotte Banks, energy research and project officer from the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), will present the learning from APSE’s recently published report, ‘So you’ve declared a climate emergency: what next.

The report, written and researched with the New Policy Institute (NPI), explores the barriers and opportunities for local councils to deliver on commitments to work towards net zero carbon emissions. It suggests that actions taken now by councils to reduce emissions, will provide long term benefits.

Drawing upon the near-term targets, published by the Committee on Climate Change, the report highlights many achievable actions by local authorities in reducing emissions in assets and building, energy, transport, leisure and waste and recycling services.

The report draws on the findings of the IPPC report of 2018 and the UK Climate Change Committee Report of 2019 as well as an analysis of current climate emergency declarations by UK councils.

The full report can be found here and is free to download.
