Climate change is the defining issue of our time. The public can be confident that their Council is taking action and leading the response.
A new report published this week by the Local Government Management Agency shows a vast range of actions that Cork County Council and other local authorities have taken over many years to tackle climate change and to promote climate action within our communities.
Cork County Council has been proactive in many areas including energy efficiency, sustainable transport development, flood risk management, water conservation, waste management, nature-based solutions and public engagement.
Cork County Council is the lead authority in a shared service guiding other Councils in the Atlantic Seaboard South Region as they plan for Climate Action. In addition, we have been responding to the extreme weather events that are the effect of climate change and have developed a Climate Adaptation Strategy to ensure we build our resilience and preparedness. You can read that strategy here
Cork County Council has also signed a Climate Action Charter setting some of our ambition for the future. Read that here
