The following is from The Edinburgh Reporter:
plan will include a framework of action required on the part of the
council, citizens and businesses in the city and responds to work by the
Edinburgh Climate Commission. One of the asks is that everyone in the city, particularly small and medium sized businesses, should sign up to the Edinburgh Climate Compact
which will commit individual organisations to transition to net zero.
The plan will dovetail in with all other council policies such as the City Mobility Plan and the 2030 City Plan.
The six main principles of the draft plan are:
- Ensuring a Just Transition to net zero which focuses on fair work and tackling poverty and inequality in Edinburgh.
- Preventing future emissions and adapting Edinburgh to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
- Creating 20-minute neighbourhoods where every day needs and services can be met locally.
- Improving the energy efficiency of Edinburgh’s buildings helping to
reduce citywide emissions and energy demand as well as operational and
- Ensuring Edinburgh’s energy infrastructure
can support an increase in demand to the city’s electricity supply,
whilst also assessing the suitability of new green energy sources.
- Working with Scottish Government to create the right conditions and
support for citizens and businesses to make the practical changes they
need to the way they live and work to become more sustainable.
