Climate Change Strategy: Annual Review of Progress

The Derbyshire County Council Climate Change Strategy: Achieving Net Zero (2021-2025) (the “Strategy”) was approved by Cabinet on 14 October 2021 (Minute No. 166/22 refers) and published shortly thereafter. This report provides an annual summary of progress against delivery of the Strategy and the Council’s net zero targets.

The report provides a summary of:

• Relevant national and regional policy, legislation and governance changes and updates over the past 12 months that might have implications on the Council's climate change programme – see Section 2.1 and Appendix 2.
• The progress being made against the Council's net zero target of 2032, or sooner, and the county’s net zero target of 2050, and the challenges being faced to reduce emissions from corporate property, streetlighting, core fleet and grey fleet – see Section 2.3 to 2.12.
• The progress being made against each target and action within the Strategy – see Section 2.13 to 2.17, and Appendix 3.
• Details on other key projects, initiatives and schemes that are contributing to the Council's climate change and wider sustainability agenda and objectives – see Section 2.18 to 2.30.

Further annual reports will be produced in the Autumn of each year.
