Climate emergency – support the Green Action Plan for Edinburgh

Green Councillors have won the unanimous backing of Edinburgh Council for a ‘2030 Climate Emergency’ proposal.

Council has agreed to set an Edinburgh climate pollution target in-line with UN recommendations, and develop an action plan to reduce the City’s impact on climate change.

Edinburgh is among scores of UK councils to have now declared a ‘Climate Emergency’. The action plan will come back to the Council for approval in May.

Green Councillors however are critical of the SNP-Labour Coalition approach.

Cllr Steve Burgess said:

‘We have proposed a £3m fighting fund to tackle the city’s climate-changing pollution but disappointingly this has not yet been backed by any other party’.
