The Staffordshire Sustainability Board was created in January 2022 as a response to local authorities in Staffordshire announcing climate emergencies.
It brings together Elected Members (Sustainability and Climate Change Portfolio Holders) from the councils in Staffordshire to allow discussion on relevant environmental and sustainability issues, debate matters affecting multiple authorities and decide outcomes and objectives for collaborative projects.
It facilitates a collaborative forum, to work together, to influence change and to encourage organisations and individuals to ensure Staffordshire is net carbon zero by 2050.
In January 2023, the Board joined with the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Joint Waste Management Board to improve effectiveness and efficiency of directing and monitoring on the sustainability agenda. This allowed recommendations to be made to the Staffordshire Leaders Board in a clear and concise fashion.
