The Council has developed and approved its Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy and its associated action plan - the ClimateCO2de, which aims to improve natural resource efficiency both within Council operations and out in the community.
Resource efficiency is not just about the environment, or economics, or climate change. It cuts through every aspect of our lives. From over filling the kettle for our first cup of tea in the morning; to driving to the shops when we could probably walk. There are things we all do every day that are beginning to add up in a big way.
The benefits of improving resource efficiency are many and varied, from reducing our carbon emissions to improving health and wellbeing.
So how will the ClimateCO2de help?
The ClimateCO2de heralds the start of a programme of services that will make it easier for our communities to act in more environmentally conscious ways. The services that we will be delivering with partners will be focussed on enabling everyone to be a bit more environmentally conscious.
Did you know you can borrow an energy monitor from the library in the same way you can borrow a book or a cd? The monitors are free to loan, very simple to operate and can show you how much electricity you are using. For more information, please visit the Energy Monitors page via the related links at the bottom of this page.
One of the first actions we took was to offer a free thermal imaging service. This trial service offered a free thermal image of people’s homes to highlight areas where homes were losing energy and therefore wasting money.
