Powys CC to consider Climate Emergency motion

13.2 Notice of Motion: Green Heart of Wales

This Council in seeing Powys as the Green Heart of Wales;

1.     acknowledges the Climate Change Emergency and thus:

2.     Asks the pension trustees to develop a strategy of divestment from fossil fuels

3.     Supports the principles of Zero Carbon Britain and the work done by CAT (Centre for Alternative Technology)

4.     Encourages the development of Hydrogen production and technologies in Powys utilising the clean environment, water and energy supply

5.     Highlights that green technologies and the new economic opportunities as part of environmental sustainability should be a fundamental part of the Mid Wales Growth deal thus giving us a USP (Unique Selling Point)

6.     That the authority should put in place a strategy for net zero carbon of its activities and develop best environmental practice in its buildings

7.     That the authority should look at best practice from other authorities such as robinhoodenergy.co.uk with Nottinghamshire Council and theleccy.co.uk/about/ with Liverpool City Council, in not only developing local energy ownership and supply chains but also assisting tackling fuel poverty.

Proposed by County Councillor Elwyn Vaughan

Seconded by County Councillor Bryn Davies
