We are delighted that Doncaster Council have today declared a climate and biodiversity emergency.
Councillors unanimously supported a motion calling for:
- a new target and action plan for Doncaster Council to become carbon neutral
- collaboration with partners, other local authorities and the Yorkshire region on carbon reduction projects to ensure the UK is able to deliver on its climate commitments
- sustainability, biodiversity and carbon reduction to be put at the heart of this council’s agenda going forward supporting communities, business and individuals locally to make more sustainable choices
- the Government to be lobbied to provide the resources and powers so that Doncaster can make its contribution to the UK’s Carbon Reduction targets
