Our current Energy Strategy has been in place since 2007 and covers all our council buildings.
This strategy (and policy) will be supported through to implementation by the adopted AVDC Carbon Management Plan. The council recognises the importance of our buildings energy efficiency as one of the first steps in the effort to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change.
We also understands the importance of the role of local government in contributing towards national carbon emission reduction targets at a local level, setting an example for the community and raising awareness. The council intends to exercise its role as a community leader by setting an example to others in addressing issues such as climate change, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and using sustainable technologies implemented through our Carbon Management Plan and via public commitments such as the Nottingham Declaration.
The council commits its members and officers through this strategy, to support and implement this policy and will provide appropriate levels of resources to achieve these objectives and standards wherever practically possible, with a view to making its contribution to environmental improvement and long term sustainability.
