Denbighshire County Council's Climate and Ecological Change Strategy Review (2021/22-2029/30)

Why are we doing this?

Denbighshire County Council is calling on the public to share their views to help drive future climate and ecological change Council initiatives.

Denbighshire County Council declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency in July 2019 which committed the Council to become net carbon zero by 2030 and improve biodiversity. 

The Council engaged with the public throughout 2020 to develop a Strategy to deliver on those commitments. Find out more about that consultation here.

In February 2021 the Council adopted its Climate and Ecological Change Strategy (2021/22 – 2029/30) inclusive of the following 2030 goals:
-    Net Carbon Zero Council by 2030
-    Ecologically Positive Council by 2030
-    35% reduction in supply chain emissions by 2030.

The strategy explains what we mean by the goals net carbon zero and ecologically positive Council, how the Council was performing in 2019/20 on those, what we hope 2030 will look like for the Council having achieved our goals and the changes and actions we hope to deliver over the next 9 years.

We said we would review and refresh the strategy every three years and the first time to do that is now, during financial year 2023/24.
