Climate change is a critical issue facing us all. North East Lincolnshire Council is firm in its ambitions, having declared a climate emergency in September 2019. We know that prevention and protection from climate change is a concern shared by our residents. The enormity of the situation can seem overwhelming, but we believe a collective effort of small steps can make a massive difference.
At North East Lincolnshire Council, we care about our environment, and we want to play our part in helping to solve the crisis that our planet faces. We have already worked to reduce our organisation’s carbon emissions and we recognise that we need to work with others to achieve a sustainable future for our place.
