Climate Action

This new topic page will focus on our Climate Action Charter (see agreed version below). A series of events, studies and activities will be developed to support partners develop their own actions to address climate change and prepare for zero carbon.  Initially this will focus on two key areas:

  • Implementing relevant recommendations from the Essex Green Skills Infrastructure Review.
  • Developing steps to prepare partners for the new Buildings Standard in 2025.

As the page is developed, it will also showcase best practice and pilots being undertaken by partners, in support of the wide Essex Climate Action Commission.
