Climate Action in Lincoln Survey

Tue, 05/18/2021 - 11:07

The climate is changing rapidly with effects being seen all over the UK and across the world.  People, now, more than ever want to take action to reduce their carbon footprint, and live in ways that are less carbon-intensive, use less of our planet's precious resources, and want to support the target set by Lincoln to be a zero-carbon city by 2030. To achieve this citywide, emissions will need to reduce by 11 percent every year until 2030. Supporting residents and communities to take action is a crucial part of achieving this ambition.
