The government has stated that climate change is an existential threat to humanity. Without global action to limit GHG emissions, the climate will change catastrophically with almost unimaginable consequences for societies across the world.
The public sector is in a unique position of being able to lead the way for the rest of the country. Our activities directly influence the behaviours of the citizens we serve across the UK to deliver real change.
Carbon is vital for us to live and survive. The world does need Carbon to exist but when there is too much Carbon it causes the environmental issues we have seen around the world. This has been recognised by the United Nations and the Paris Climate agreement for 2050.
