How is Cornwall Responding to the Challenges of Climate Change

This means that it accepts the scientific evidence on climate change, welcomes the benefits that accrue from tackling climate change, and welcomes the opportunity to take a lead in helping residents and businesses reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

It commits it to:-

developing plans within 2 years to address the challenges, in partnership with local communities and businesses,

publicly declare the commitment to reduce emissions,

assess the risks and implications,

encourage all sectors in mitigation and adaption,

monitor progress and publish the results.
