Tackling Climate Change

Scotland has world-leading Climate Change legislation, with ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. East Lothian Council has reduced its carbon emissions year on year, due to many initiatives that are underway across the council.

We are working in partnership with communities, local groups and national bodies to improve sustainability, encourage a low carbon lifestyle and look after our environment.

Climate Change Strategy

We are currently developing a climate change strategy which will set out a coordinated approach and action plan.

We would like to hear your views on what East Lothian Council, and the wider East Lothian community (including local communities, groups, businesses and individuals), can do to lower carbon emissions, be more sustainable, and prepare for the future effects of climate change.
