The only way to do this right is to do it together. Let’s work together to tackle climate change for ourselves and for our future generations.
Our planet is facing a climate emergency! In June 2019 Perth & Kinross Council declared support for the Scottish Government and UK Parliaments’ climate emergency statements. The Scottish Government highlighted the urgency to tackle climate change and ensure Scotland becomes 'Net Zero' by 2045. Although climate change is a global problem, we can see its effects locally. For this reason, Perth & Kinross Council has committed to work together with our communities to make changes to the way we behave and create a co-shared vision for a net zero and climate resilient Perth and Kinross.
Linking with the Perth and Kinross Offer, everyone has something to offer during this journey and we have to act together to tackle and adapt to climate change.
This website has been developed by Perth & Kinross Council following requests from residents for a central source of trusted and knowledgeable climate action advice for residents, businesses and visitors. This site will allow you to keep up to date with climate change action across Perth and Kinross and provide a platform to share experience and ideas between groups, encourage others to get involved and celebrate the valuable work being undertaken by communities to tackle climate change.
On the 15th of December 2021 Councillors unanimously backed the Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan, which sets out how Perth and Kinross will reach net zero carbon emissions by 2045.
