and live on Freeview channel 276
The move follows a motion to Council on Thursday September 21 and means that by 2030, the Council’s operations should achieve a balance between the carbon emitted into the atmosphere, and the carbon removed from it.
The motion, proposed by Cllr Darrell Pulk, Cabinet Member for Environment and Energy resolved to become a member of the UK100 network of local leaders pledging to lead a rapid transition to Net Zero.
The motion also included agreeing to the UK100 Net Zero Pledge, meeting Net Zero council operations by 2030, meeting Net Zero area-wide emissions by 2045
A pledge was also made to report carbon emissions annually for both council emissions and area-wide emissions, as well as limiting the use of carbon offsets, and if they are used, then these must be as local as possible.
