NALC highlights to the government the role local councils can have in net-zero


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) highlighted the role local (parish and town) councils could play in decarbonisation.

NALC responded this week to the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) independent review of net zero. NALC urged the government to recognise the role local councils can play to help the government meet its net-zero targets and not just factor in the private sector.

NALC highlighted that local councils could achieve this by:

  • Showing leadership through using low-carbon and environmentally sympathetic practices in their day-to-day activities.
  • Encouraging residents and businesses to adopt lower-carbon practices.
  • Undertaking new initiatives which use low-carbon technology.
