Dumfries and Galloway Council

The adoption by the council of our Climate Emergency Declaration on the 27th June 2019 highlights the importance of Climate Change locally and promotes the role that Dumfries and Galloway Council is required to play, to coordinate, support and lead on regional activity to reduce our carbon emissions and support a transition to a low and zero carbon economy that maximises the opportunities locally to build on the green recovery and create a more sustainable economic model for the future.

The council supports both direct and indirect activities locally through the role they play through the council's property portfolio, energy consumption, education provision and fleet, to its influence with others through strategic partnerships championing key economic sectors such as agriculture and forestry. Our Communities, businesses and our delivery are impacted by the effects of climate change; resolving it benefits everyone. Dumfries and Galloway Council is committed to an active role in the fight against Climate Change.
