Climate Change

We aim to be an authority which balances economic prosperity with environmental sustainability, improving the lives of people and our environment today and in the future.
The Low Carbon Thematic Group was formed to steer the Council in its eight objectives.

  • Monitoring energy and water consumption
  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Enhancing the built environment
  • Energy Procurement
  • Energy advice and education
  • Renewable energy
  • Transportation
  • Partnership working

We will be working on these objectives and you can follow the progress on our news page. You can also read our Carbon Reduction Plan 2019 - 2030 for more information.

Net Zero

We have teamed up with Nottingham Trent University to help create a programme of support for Bolsover based businesses to help them achieve Net Zero.

The Hyper-Local Net Zero Innovation Programme has been created thanks to grant funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). We are committed to helping develop businesses skills and understanding around Net Zero.

To help deliver this commitment, the council appointed the academic partner who will provide activities such as:

  •  A programme of monthly networking events, Net Zero boot camps, workshops, and seminars.
  • One-to-one support for businesses to develop and implement decarbonisation plans and projects.
  • Knowledge exchange activities between academic institutions and businesses to improve innovation and adoption of new technology.
  • Supporting engagement between businesses, industry bodies, other Net Zero initiatives and grant funding programmes to support innovation projects.
  • Supporting businesses to develop green skills and talent.
  • Providing access to academic research, expertise, labs, and equipment for testing new technologies, products and/or services.
