Friday 3rd December saw the first meeting of a Climate Working Group, put together with a common focus to promote and champion collective local action on climate issues.

The working group, which has representatives from the private sector, utilities including water, gas and telecoms, local councils, and other local bodies, has been created following recommendations made in a report which was published in October by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate and chaired by Baroness Brown of Cambridge, Dame Julia King.

The mission of the working group is to demonstrate local leadership and ensure coherent, system-wide action on tackling the causes and effects of climate change, and through collaborative working ensure an effective and immediate response within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough that is fair, long lasting and appropriately timed to meet national Net Zero targets by 2030. Greenhouse emissions across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are almost 25% higher per person than the UK average.
