The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership has submitted its response to the City Council's Climate Change Action Plan.
The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership's (BHEP) response was formulated with input from key stake holders including Brighton & Hove Bus & Coach Company, edf energy, Southern Water, Magpie Recyling, Ecosys, North Laine Traders Association, Sussex Enterprise and Brighton & Hove Hotel's Association.
The Climate Change Action Plan aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a result of the Council's actions, specifically reducing energy use, waste and the use of unsustainable forms of transport.
BEHP welcomes the Council’s Plan as a positive step forward and commends the Council for focusing on the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the need to tackle issues which will arise as a result of climate change.
However, BHEP's response raises concerns about the long term direction of the plan and its heavy focus on internal Council actions. BHEP believes the plan provides an opportunity for the Council to act as a champion for action against Climate Change and a beacon for what can be achieved as well as an opportunity to engage the city as a whole with the issue.
