Climate change presents the county council and the Staffordshire public with both challenges and opportunities. By acting now and working together as a county, we can tackle the impacts that could arise, and at the same time benefit from initiatives that save money and protect the environment.
What is the county council doing?
Please see our corporate climate change strategy document to see how we are reducing our carbon emissions. We are also looking at ways in which our residents can adapt to climate change.
How can this be done?
This can be achieved from a range of measures. Some are achieved at no cost, such as our schools' energy efficiency scheme. Some require investment, such as installing solar panels and biomass boilers.
We also work on many projects in partnership with Staffordshire’s district and borough councils, universities, emergency services, the Civil Contingencies Unit and community groups to ensure a county-wide approach to climate change.
