Carbon management

Why does West Lindsey District Council need a carbon management plan?

It is vital that the council manages the risks and opportunities related to climate change for example by controlling carbon emissions from our own operations; cutting carbon emissions is part of the fight against climate change and a priority for the council, it’s about getting our own house in order and leading by example. If the council does not monitor and manage its energy usage and subsequent carbon emissions then both are likely to increase year on year subjecting the council to ever increasing fuel costs and potentially carbon taxes. By reducing our energy consumption we also reduce our carbon emissions making a positive contribution to the environment and limiting the council’s vulnerability to rising fuel costs.
