What improvements can be made to the city’s carbon emissions reduction performance?

Help the Brighton & Hove Strategic Partnership (BHSP) to identify how improvements can be made to the city’s carbon emissions reduction performance, by completing a Climate Change Self Assessment.

The BHSP committed to tackling climate change as a priority in 2007 and included an annual 3.5% CO2 emissions reduction target in the Sustainable Community Strategy. The city has since signed up to an annual 4% reduction, but is not achieving this.

The Comprehensive Area Assessment identified that the city has good intentions for adapting to climate change but little is being done to take action. The Audit Commission identified that a self evaluation should be undertaken as soon as possible to enable the BHSP to identify how improvements can be made to the city’s carbon emissions reduction performance.

The City Sustainability Partnership recently agreed to address this issue by creating a six-month Policy Development Officer post to carry out a climate change self-evaluation for the city and develop an action plan. This action plan will be a statement of intent of the actions required to mitigate the impact of climate change at a local level.

The self-evaluation covers both mitigation (emissions reduction) and adaptation (resilience to the local impacts of climate change).

The self-evaluation should also help the Brighton & Hove Strategic Partnership to:

  • Identify what it is doing well and what improvements are needed
  • Systematically plan for improvements
  • Prepare robust evidence for performance measurement

To ensure the city has access to the most current data take part in the Climate Change Self Assessment by following the link below.  http://consult.brighton-hove.gov.uk/public/lsp/ccsa

Consultation will close on 12th July 2010.
