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’.
