In August 2019, we committed to achieve "net zero emissions" by 2030 to end our contribution to climate change. This very ambitious target will require a radical change in the way we work, travel and deliver services to minimise our impact on the environment.

Everyone has a role to play to help make Falkirk climate resilient and a greener place to live.

In 2019, the newly established Green Champions Network gathered a list of actions that every employee can take to contribute to the Council's ambitious target.

Green Charter

The role of this group is to promote resource efficiency in the Council and to support the Energy & Climate Change Team to ensure that sustainability is embedded in all operations and policies.

The network contributes towards the Council of the Future goals, spreading a culture of change and improving collaborative working. The group comprises voluntary staff members from all services and seniority levels.
