Durham County Council’s Cabinet has agreed the council’s third Climate Emergency Response Plan (CERP3) covering the period 2024 to 2027. It builds on the first two plans, CERP1 and CERP2, the first of which was established in 2020.

CERP3 will set out 232 actions to carry out over the next three years to help achieve its targets of reducing council emissions by 80 per cent and achieving net zero emissions for County Durham by 2045.

Through the actions in CERP1 and CERP2, the council has achieved a 61 per cent reduction in its carbon emissions, which have fallen from 105,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2008 to 41,733 tonnes (2022/2023).
