In July 2019 Sefton Council declared a Climate Emergency. In declaring a Climate Emergency, it was agreed that:
Sefton Council is committed to reducing carbon emissions and resolves to go further than the UK100 Agreement and to act in line with the scientific consensus that we must reduce emissions to net zero by 2030, and therefore commits to:
Make the Council’s activities net-zero carbon by 2030.
Ensure that all strategic decisions are in line with a shift to zero carbon by 2030.
Achieve 100% clean energy across Sefton Council’s full range of functions by 2030.
