Updates - what comes next?

There are lots of exciting future opportunities for Dorset Council and our residents to help in the fight against climate change.

We have recently formed a Technical Officers group. This is made up of officers from across the entire Council working across various services who are best positioned to work out how we can develop the good work we have already started as well as look to how we can change the way we do things in the future to reduce our own carbon footprint as a council.

Ideas we are currently discussing include:

  • greener vehicles - conversion of vehicles to electric/bio-fuel models. Installing more electric vehicle charging points in our car parks
  • greener buildings - enforcing minimum energy efficiency standards (e.g. heating and insulation) and sustainable development (eg. solar panels) before granting licencing for building, developing or renting buildings
  • green energy - further investigation of investing in sustainable energy production such as wind and solar farms, and purchasing green energy from external suppliers

Read a presentation from the Technical Officers group to the Climate Change Executive Advisory Group on their work so far (13 September 2019).

Read the opening presentation given at the Climate Emergency workshop on Thursday 17 October.

Read the initial thoughts and findings report to the Climate Change Executive Advisory Group on Friday 18 October, following the Climate Emergency workshop the previous day.
