A new film to launch the Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission - PCAN's newest (and biggest) addition to our growing network of commissions - premiered yesterday (17 March) to an online audience of more than 400 people.
The film, presented by BBC Meteorologist Paul Hudson, sets out the climate change challenge for the sprawling region and showcases a range of inspirational "success stories" from organisations and groups.
An independent advisory group, set up to support ambitious climate action in Yorkshire and the Humber, has launched today, 17 March.
The Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission brings together a team of climate leaders from across the public, private and third sectors, in the largest regional Commission of its kind in the UK.
Leeds Climate Commission Statement on the Leeds Bradford Airport Planning Application
The Leeds Climate Commission is a voluntary body set up to bring individuals from organisations and groups from the public, private and third sectors together to support and guide climate action in the city. It has always been recognised that at times this would not be easy and would involve difficult decisions.
Taking action on climate change could save Leeds £651m per year and create 1,500 jobs for the next decade, a new report has revealed.
These social and economic benefits could be a central part of the city’s post-Covid recovery plans says the Leeds Climate Commission, which has produced a Net-Zero Carbon Roadmap for Leeds. It shows how the city can achieve its ambition of net-zero emissions by 2030 with many positive benefits for health, equality, travel, housing and the environment.
