Suffolk Climate Change Partnership

Who We Are

The Suffolk Climate Change Partnership consists of Suffolk’s local authorities and the Environment Agency, working together locally with a number of other organisations including Groundwork Suffolk and University Campus Suffolk. We have a shared interest in supporting Suffolk’s communities, businesses and residents to reduce carbon emissions, realise the economic benefits of reducing energy consumption and adapt to the future impacts of climate change.

Our Vision

Our Vision, as set out in 'Transforming Suffolk', the Community Strategy 2008-2025, is as follows: “Suffolk wants to be an exemplar in tackling climate change and protecting and enhancing its natural...environment...to be the county with the greatest reduction in carbon emissions”

The Suffolk Climate Action Plan 2

In July 2012 we published the 'Suffolk Climate Action Plan 2': Supporting the transition to a green economy and appendix, which outlines the objectives we have set ourselves to realise this Vision. Progress against this plan will be reported to the Creating the Greenest County Board.

This replaced the first Suffolk Climate Action Plan, which was published in July 2009.

The Plan is currently in revision and we intend to publish a ‘Suffolk Climate Action Plan 3’ this year (2016). A review of progress against the Actions within the SCAP2 Appendix, including a summary overview, is available here

Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) Report

All of Suffolk's Local Authorities are committed to working in partnership to improve the energy efficiency of properties within their areas. Please find our Suffolk-wide HECA report. This is our March 2015 update to the original (March 2013) report and has been produced as an update on our plans and targets for this area of work.

Residents, communities and businesses are invited to read our plans and to contact us if you would like further detail or to talk to us about ways in which you can get involved in supporting them.

Suffolk’s Local Authorities welcome any approaches by individuals, communities and businesses wishing to work with us in support of this agenda. Please contact: creatinggreenestcounty@suffolk.gov.uk or your relevant Borough or District Officer if you wish to discuss this further.
