Herefordshire Climate and Nature Partnership Board
Herefordshire is on a rapid journey towards achieving zero carbon by 2030 to create a county that we all want in the future.
Like many places across the UK, Herefordshire declared a climate emergency in 2019 which was followed by the development of a Climate and Nature Action Plan involving people across the county.
The plan of action focusses on six key areas and these are hosted on the Herefordshire Zero Carbon and Nature Rich website, including housing and buildings, energy, transport, food consumption, farming and land use, and waste management.
Sitting alongside and supporting these plans and the achievement of the county's net zero ambition is the Greener Footprints communications and engagement campaign. This has been designed to encourage, inspire and mobilise people and organisations from all corners of the community to be part of a Herefordshire-wide "movement of positive action" on a scale never seen before in order to tackle climate change and protect the county's rich nature and wildlife.
These environmental ambitions and activities are being steered and driven by a specially created 16-strong Climate and Nature Partnership Board who bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge through their roles in conservation, wildlife, architecture, farming, the media, community energy, research, land management, agricultural policy and running businesses.
