On 14th March 2019, Bath & North East Somerset Council declared a Climate Emergency.
The resolution pledged to:
Provide leadership to enable carbon neutral Bath and North East Somerset by 2030
Sign up to the UK100 Clean Energy Pledge (100% clean energy by 2030)
Enable citizen engagement
Oppose expansion of Bristol Airport
Our 2019-2024 Corporate Strategy was developed in line with the Climate Emergency declaration.
Our two core policies are:
- Address the Climate Emergency
- Give people a bigger say
Three principles drive the commitments in the strategy. These principles are:
Prepare for the future
Deliver for local residents
Focus on prevention
The purpose of the Strategy is to explain how the Procurement & Commissioning functions will address our corporate ambitions and deliver effective value for money.
