Climate change has been recognised internationally as the most important environmental challenge that we currently face. A changing climate has profound effects on all of our lives, and those of future generations. It directly impacts how we, as a Council, plan our activities to meet the needs of all residents in the district. South Staffordshire Council recognises that our Climate Change Strategy is efforts to a wider, global agenda. As a council we hope to collectively tackle climate change. The Climate Change Resource allows Parishes, residents, business, and partners to be able to access information based on tackling climate change such as: national initiatives, distinctive initiatives, local initiatives, Impact community carbon calculator, HECA report and our Warmer Homes strategy.
