Between January and April 2007, all of Scotland's 32 local authorities signed up to Scotland's Climate Change Declaration.
Signatories to Scotland's Climate Change Declaration acknowledge the reality and importance of climate change and are committed to:
- mitigating their impact on climate change through reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- taking steps to adapt to the unavoidable impacts of a changing climate
- working in partnership with their communities to respond to climate change
The Declaration recognises that Scottish local authorities play a key role in our collective response to the challenge of climate change, and publicly demonstrates their commitment to action.
