Climate Strategy consultation
As a council, we have already made major progress in reducing carbon emissions from our own activities - a massive 55% drop since 2010!
But this only accounts for around 2.5% of Gateshead's total carbon footprint.
So now the Climate Strategy is about working with everybody with a stake in Gateshead, whether you live, work or travel through the borough, to make changes to reduce our carbon emissions.
We want to map out what has already happened across Gateshead and gather your suggestions of what should happen next.
The consultation period is now closed - thank you to everyone who contributed their ideas.
We are now compiling an update on the consultation response and we will produce a plan for each ward for your local councillors to champion and provide support in making your suggestions happen.
