In 2019, Telford & Wrekin Council declared a climate emergency. It is now working, along with partners, to go carbon neutral by 2030 – and to reduce single-use plastic across the council by 2023!

Thematic Sub Groups

The Partnership has established six thematic sub-groups. The thematic sub-groups have enabled even more organisations from within the borough to get involved, often bringing a unique skill-set and interest specific to the thematic areas. Each sub-group has developed their own action plan, which has been brought together into this overarching Borough Action Plan.

The themes are;

  • Transport
  • Energy
  • Learning, Communications and Public Engagement
  • Agriculture, Forestry and other Land Use
  • Buildings
  • Industry

These six cross-cutting thematic areas are not intended to represent a comprehensive or exhaustive list; rather they represent a way of organising some of the borough’s most critical climate change activities.

Over the coming decade, we will continue to have an open dialogue and engage with individuals, households, organisations and businesses to continue to develop and further the climate change agenda.
