Warning message

We’re asking Ipswich residents to put their bins out the night before their scheduled collection during this extra hot weather so crews can start a little earlier and stagger their rounds, avoiding the hottest part of the day (mid-afternoon). We appreciate your cooperation.

About climate change, the Council's environment strategy, grants for householders and tips for saving energy.

The affects of climate change on the world.
Free and easy changes we can all make to help lower the amount of CO2 we produce - and save money!
What the Council is doing to promote climate change.
Climate change is a global problem and there is increasing evidence that early and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are needed to avoid the significant impacts of climate change.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) were introduced in October 2008 to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings. If you are building, selling or renting a home you need an EPC by law.
The Helpline is available to all Suffolk residents, providing free, independent expert advice and information on ways to save energy at home, and in the community, helping you to save money on your energy bills, and reduce your household carbon footprint.
The purpose of the Suffolk Green Buildings Network is to raise the profile of a growing number of green buildings that are cheaper to heat, cheaper to light, have less environmental impact and are better adapted to climate change.
