North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) was one of the first 12 organisations to sign up to the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact.

Spearheaded by Leicestershire County Council, working with partners and stakeholders from across the region, the pact sets out a commitment to tackle climate change, nature decline and carbon reduction.

The pact is based on the principles of the Glasgow Climate Pact, signed by the UK government in November 2021.  It brings together the private and voluntary sectors to work with local government, education sector and local communities to make environmental changes.

The core requirements of the pact include the need to act quickly on reducing the impacts of climate change, reducing carbon emissions to net zero, halting ecological decline, supporting climate recovery, and working together to deliver effective action on climate change.

The pact was officially launched and signed on Tuesday 28 February 2023, attended by representatives from more than 40 organisations who gathered to share their ideas on how to work together towards common net zero carbon goals.

NWLDC has committed to reduce its carbon footprint and looks to encourage our residents, business and communities to do the same. Signing the Leicestershire Climate and Nature Pact further demonstrates our commitment to do all we can to reach our net zero aims and support the shared aims of our county council colleagues.
