Climate Change and Green Recovery

Our Vision is ‘to create a green, healthy and resilient Stafford Borough where everyone can thrive, by limiting the impacts of climate change and meeting our climate change and green recovery commitments’

Over the next few years our delivery will be focused upon the following objectives.    

  • Reduce emissions from our own activities 
  • Work in partnership with Government, Elected Bodies and Elected Members, Partners, Residents and Businesses across the Borough to take action that contributes to carbon neutrality and sustainable development within communities and across the natural environment
  • Mitigate and Adapt to Climate Change
  • Continue to implement our green recovery objectives

We have recently worked with Keele University and the Centre for Alternative Technology to identify how the council could most effectively respond to the climate and ecological emergencies. This work was undertaken with neighbouring authorities.
