SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICY MAKERS PRIORITISE NET ZERO

South Yorkshire policy makers have pledged to put climate change at the centre of regional plans, following an international day of action to prioritise net zero.

The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) has committed to achieving a Net Zero economy by 2040, following the declaration of a Climate and Environmental Emergency in South Yorkshire in 2019.

South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard said: “The climate crisis and how we tackle it is the biggest challenge we will face in our lifetimes. Climate breakdown is a big, urgent problem which requires big, bold thinking. We are working every day to make South Yorkshire a better place to live, and if we want to improve health and air quality, to grow our economy and create great new jobs, then reaching net zero by 2040 is crucial.”

He adds: “Carbon Literacy Training offers us all the opportunity to not just understand the problem better, but learn how we can all overcome that problem together.”

The Carbon Literacy Action Day (CLAD) – the world’s largest mass training event on climate change - took place on 7th November, the date in which the international Conference of Parties (COP27) event began in Egypt.
