Who We Are

The Suffolk Climate Change Partnership (SCCP) consists of all of Suffolk’s Local Authorities, and since 2009, has worked with other organisations locally including Groundwork East, the Environment Agency and the University of Suffolk. We have a shared interest in supporting Suffolk’s communities, businesses and residents to reduce their carbon emissions, realise the economic benefits of reducing energy consumption and adapt to the future impacts of climate change.

Our vision is for Suffolk to be an exemplar in tackling climate change and protecting and enhancing its natural environment and to be the county with the greatest reduction in carbon emissions.

In 2019 our Local Authority members each declared a ‘climate emergency’. As part of this, we are working together with partners across the county and region towards the aspiration of making the county of Suffolk carbon neutral by 2030.

The Suffolk Climate Emergency Plan was agreed by Suffolk’s Public Sector Leaders and supports our commitment to addressing the urgent need to deal with the climate emergency. For more information visit our Suffolk Climate Emergency Plan.
