Suffolk’s local authorities have been working together on county-wide climate change project work since 2007 through the Suffolk Climate Change Partnership (SCCP).
The SCCP consists of:
The SCCP also works with other organisations locally including Groundwork Suffolk and the University of Suffolk.
All partners have a shared interest in supporting Suffolk’s communities, businesses and residents to reduce carbon emissions.
All councils in Suffolk have acknowledged the climate emergency, with commitments that include both reducing carbon emissions for their own estates and operations and, the focus of this item, working with partners across the county and region (including the LEP, Health, Police and the Public Sector Leaders) towards the aspiration of making the county of Suffolk carbon neutral by 2030.
The SCCP run a helpline that provides free, independent advice and information to Suffolk residents on ways to save energy at home, and in the community, helping local people save money on their energy bills, and reduce their household carbon footprint.
