West Suffolk Environment and Climate Change Taskforce - Final Recommendations

The Cabinet will be asked to consider the final recommendations of the Environment and Climate Change Taskforce. The Taskforce was established to ensure that the Council uses the opportunity to review and assess its existing activities to reduce carbon emissions, whilst protecting and enhancing the environment. The list of recommendations sets out a range of initiatives as well as the timeframe for projects and programmes, which the Council could deliver alongside our partners and the community to achieve a net zero carbon district ambition. Some of the recommendations in relation to the aforementioned have budgetary implications and therefore the Cabinet will be asked to note these at the current time and consider them later as part of the budget setting process, as appropriate.
