Wiltshire Climate Strategy Discussion Document January 2021

Aims of this document

This document is a precursor to a new Wiltshire Climate Strategy.  It is not a strategy in itself, but provides an overview of the scale of the challenge and the opportunities ahead, as a basis for discussion. It will be published on the council's website, and feedback on this document will shape the draft strategy before it is formally consulted on later this year.

The document is based on initial findings from the available evidence base and articulates what carbon neutral and climate resilience looks like for Wiltshire.

Since Wiltshire Council has made a firm commitment to becoming a carbon neutral council by 2030, there is a focus on reducing carbon emissions from its operations and property. However, the council also has an ambition for the county of Wiltshire to become carbon neutral. This will require coordinated action by the public sector, businesses, voluntary sector and residents working together towards a shared goal. 

This discussion paper therefore aims to stimulate conversations with all stakeholders about the priorities and resources required to achieve a carbon neutral Wiltshire as well as the role the council should play.
