This Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) outlines our approach of how the district of Kirklees can achieve its ambition to be 'Net Zero and Climate Ready by 2038'.
Climate Change Action Plan for Kirklees
Appendix A - Existing Actions
Appendix D - Stakeholder Survey Results 2022
In its creation, we have engaged with a wide-range of individuals and organisations within Kirklees, to provide a diverse spectrum of opinions and backgrounds that are reflective of the Borough itself. We have also ensured that the CCAP is informed by our evidence base - read more about that on our evidence page.
Achieving this vision is not easy. Climate change is not restricted by jurisdictional boundaries, and neither is the solution. There is a reliance upon national level policy and a UK wide transition to Net Zero and becoming climate ready to truly see a comprehensive impact on both our emissions and our resilience to the impacts of climate change.
We are proud to present this action plan and are determined to lead the way in achieving our 2038 targets, however, our determination to be net zero and climate ready by 2038 will not achieve this target by itself. This will only be achieved through a genuine collective effort by all organisations, businesses, and residents across the district.
