This Declaration has been signed by a number of organisations in Staffordshire, including ESBC, and provides a framework for combating carbon emissions.
It was originally signed in 2006 by a number of local organisations and undertook a second signing in 2008 to welcome further partners.
This is a commitment by all the partner organisations to act on climate change by working with stakeholders, including the local community.

National Indicator Commitments
In relation to climate change, we are currently required to work towards three National Indicators 185, 186 and 188.

Please read our Corporate Plan to find how the three National Indicators fit in with the council agenda.
Climate Change Strategy
This is the main driver of climate change work to our local authority. This is the climate change policy for ESBC and contains a number of proposals to address the above national indicators over the next few years. This will shortly be located below.
The Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP)
The Local Climate Impacts Profile is an assessment of ESBCs vulnerability to severe weather. This contributes to level one of National Indicator 188. This assesses the impact the severe weather has on the services we provide and suggests improvements we should make to be prepared for climate change. Follow the links below to read the Executive Summary and our full Local Climate Impacts Profile. The appendices are also located below. Has your organisation conducted a Local Impacts Profile?
