Carbon Neutral 2030
Published: 18 October 2021
Offa Community Council recognises that we are in a state of climate emergency. This is one of the most important topics of our time and one we must all address urgently. Whilst we may like to think the worst impacts are far away, we are already seeing some effects close to home, with intense heatwaves, heavy rainfall and flooding and more frequent moorland fires. Globally, these extremes are causing large scale flooding, crop failures and droughts, increasingly leading to massive people migrations, collapse of societies, mass starvations and millions of species threatened with extinction. These conditions are only predicted to get worse, threatening the futures of our children and grandchildren. Our best hope of securing our future is to take action now.
Offa is a small Community Council; its influence is limited in what it can do to reduce carbon emissions. However, from small acorns great Oaks can grow and the Carbon challenge is all about everyone playing their part. Offa Community Council wants to play its small part in reducing our carbon footprint working with all our residents and partners.
