Climate change framework and action plan

Climate change framework and action plan

We want to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in York by 40% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. To help achieve these targets a Climate Change Framework and Climate Change Action Plan have been created.

About the framework and action plan

The climate change framework for 2010 to 2015 is a long term, overarching document that will enable York to accelerate action to reduce carbon emissions across the city, while the climate change action plan for 2010 to 2013 will deliver short term coordinated actions.
