Blackpool Council declared a climate emergency on 26 June 2019. In doing this, we recognised the impact of climate change around the world and declared that we must take action in Blackpool.
We are committed to making the council’s carbon emissions net zero and using 100% clean energy across the council’s services by 2030. The council is responsible for 3% of the total carbon emissions in Blackpool. We need to work with residents and partners across the town to make a real change.
A climate action plan for the council and the town has been prepared and can be found below. The plan sets out how the council and town can aim for net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
