Reducing Carbon Emissions across the Lancaster District

Reducing Carbon Emissions across the Lancaster District

Places are now available for an open innovation forum on the subject of reducing carbon emissions across the Lancaster District.

Lancaster City Council has become one of seventy-one UK councils to declare a Climate Emergency. This means that the Council aims to reduce carbon emissions across the Lancaster district and cut the net carbon emissions of the Council's activities to zero by 2030. To achieve these goals, the Council is looking for partners and stakeholders to collaborate with across local business, third sector bodies, and Lancaster University.

The decision to declare a Climate Emergency has led the Council to focus on the following key themes:

  • Improving town centre air quality
  • Reducing carbon dioxide emissions from transport
  • Encouraging and motivating smart parking/park & ride
  • Encouraging and motivating active travel - cycling and walking

The upcoming open innovation forum will provide and opportunity for interested parties to discuss all of these key themes, and is free to register. To register your place, please visit the eventbrite page.
