“Local authorities in Staffordshire are in the singular position of only being responsible for a small proportion of the county’s overall carbon emissions, but clearly able to set the tone and influence others as we move towards a cleaner future.
The County Council has already begun its journey, reducing its own emissions by a quarter in a single year, and working with Staffordshire’s district and borough authorities allows greater opportunities, scope for collaboration and the ability to deliver on becoming a net zero county.”
