CLIMATE ACTION

LOCAL CLIMATE ACTION and GSX

GSX groups are  taking action to support reaching Net Zero Carbon emissions.

There are many actions that an individual can take such as using public transport,cycling,not flying,

buying local food,installing solar panels,plant trees and reduce waste.

Local councils have agreed to declare a Climate Emergency inorder to reduce emissions and protect biodiversity.

Local groups are helping to produce action plans for towns such as Bridgnorth and Ludlow.

Shropshire council has agreed to a Climate Framework  and the task force has published the Corporate Climate Strategy.
