We consulted with the public to seek their views and opinions concerning our draft Sustainability Action Plan 2015-2019.
Respondants' views and opinions have helped to strengthen the final action plan. The consultation provided people with the opportunity to ask for a greater focus on certain areas, and let us know if they thought we were missing key actions.
The final strategy is now in development, and has been informed by feedback from the consultation. The action plan will be adopted in the coming months.
Leicester City Council has set a 50% reduction target for city wide carbon emissions by 2025, based on 1990 levels. The figure currently stands at around 28% lower than the baseline.
As part of this climate change target, Leicester City Council has launched Leicester’s Sustainability Action Plan for 2015-2019 which sets out 18 key priorities to meet that commitment.
The plan also identifies actions the council can take to engage with people and organisations to help reduce their environmental impact.
