Committee details

Carbon and Waste Reduction Panel

Purpose of committee

Tameside Council’s Carbon and Waste Reduction Panel monitors Council activities to reduce energy consumption and the related carbon emissions and reducing waste. This ranges from initiatives to encourage behaviour change to larger schemes and projects to cut carbon.

Energy conservation is a key priority for Tameside Council. This is something the Council takes very seriously and intends to lead by example.

The Panel had its first meeting on 8 March 2007 and a decision was taken to sign the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change.

This reiterates the Council's commitment to reduce its energy use, which will help mitigate global warming and the effects of climate change at a local level.
