North Norfolk’s Net Zero strategy revealed
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has set out the details of its plan to be Net Zero by 2030.
NNDC’s Net Zero Strategy and Action Plan, outlines how it intends to achieve Net Zero as well as providing a breakdown of its carbon emissions from the last three years.
The plan includes improving the energy efficiency of buildings, decarbonising the vehicle fleet and services, generating renewable energy and supporting staff to work in more energy-efficient ways, including travelling less.
NNDC’s supply chain emissions will also be reduced, and it will be exploring how it can shift to a more sustainable procurement.
Cllr. Nigel Lloyd, portfolio holder for Environmental Services, Climate Change & Environment, said:
“I am delighted to share with North Norfolk residents our Net Zero Action Plan. Developed with our small team of officers and independent experts in this field, the document provides an evidenced-based and easy-to-understand outline of NNDC’s carbon emissions and those generated by our contractors. It sets out what part of the council’s activities are responsible for generating carbon emissions and quantifies them. This data allows us to target carbon releases in a structured way to reduce our emissions year on year leading to net zero carbon emissions by 2030.”
