Our carbon management plan

The County Council has set an ambitious target of reducing carbon emissions by 20% by 2015. Schools play a major part in achieving this target as they produce nearly 60% of its carbon footprint.

A carbon strategy sets out how the County Council will achieve this target over the next five years, as well as how the County Council aims to reduce carbon emissions by a further 40% by 2025, and be carbon neutral by 2050.
