Tackling climate change is one of the strategic priorities for Leeds City Council. Reducing damaging carbon emissions can save us all money and preparing for likely changes to weather patterns means that we can protect everyone’s quality of life.
Leeds’ Climate Change Strategy
Leeds’ climate change strategy is a clear set of priorities that organisations across Leeds are working on to tackle the causes and impact of climate change.
It sets out a far reaching, city-wide approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making sure that Leeds is resilient to changing weather patterns. The priorities build on the successes of work already being delivered by the Leeds Initiative partners.
Leeds City Council’s climate change action plan
The council’s climate change action plan shows all of the projects that it is working on to make sure it reduces it’s carbon emissions and helps others to do the same.
Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP) using the past to prepare for the future
To help the council and other organisations prepare for the effects of climate change, past extreme weather events and their consequences have been examined. These tell us how organisations and communities have responded and can help us identify vulnerable areas. We can use this information to plan for the future.
