Declare an Ecological and Climate Emergency.

·         Newport City Council will continue the good work that we have started and reduce our carbon emissions to net zero carbon by 2030.

·         Review the services we provide to ensure they support the city’s journey to both net zero carbon and adapting to the impacts of climate change by 2050.

·         Develop a clear Climate Change Organisational plan, in consultation with our citizens, for the next five years that will set out the actions we need to take to achieve this.

·         Develop a city-wide Local Area Energy Plan, in collaboration with experts from the public, private and third sector to develop innovative solutions to decarbonise heat, electricity and local transport and realise local renewable energy production.

·         Work with One Newport partners and the public to develop a city-wide Climate Strategy to enable city-wide net zero carbon and adaptation to climate change by 2050 and integrate best ecological practice into each area of the council’s activity, allowing us to lead the city by example.

·         Publicise this declaration of an ecological and climate emergency to residents and businesses in Newport and support and influence action by partners through partnerships and support and enable action by citizens to reduce their own carbon emissions.

The motion is to be proposed by the Leader and seconded by Councillor Jason Hughes.
