 The Council has been working on a number of programmes to reduce carbon emissions in the borough and to prepare and adapt to the inevitable effects of climate change and these are outlined further below.

Wellingborough was one of the first local authorities to sign to the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change back in 2001.

Northamptonshire Climate Change Strategy - The Council is working with a number of partners to minimise the effects of climate change and ensure resilience to its inevitable effects; this is being achieved through the Northamptonshire Climate Change Strategy.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting - The Council has produced a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report at the request of the Department of Energy & Climate Change.

The Home Energy Conservation Act. The HECA 1995 requires local authorities to produce an annual report on progress to make homes in the borough more energy efficient. Our latest report recognises our plan to improve the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in our area and to achieve reductions in domestic carbon emissions.
