TRDC is seeking to update its Climate Emergency and Sustainability Strategy, which was adopted in 2021, to take further action to reduce the local authority’s emissions to net-zero by 2030 and achieve net-zero for the district by 2045.

The upgraded 2023-2026 strategy acknowledges that mitigation alone is no longer sufficient to combat climate change, and states that climate adaptation is now critical to the future of the district.

The council estimates that the district must reduce its emissions by 14% annually to reach its carbon reduction goals.

Now residents and stakeholders are invited to have their say on the council’s updated plan. The consultation runs until Friday 14 July.  To have your say, please click here.
