Climate for Change Event

Thursday, 2 July, 2020 - 13:00 to 14:00

During the coronavirus outbreak Business has shown resilience innovation and an ability to change?
Whilst much of this would have been challenging, there may have been changes in modes of working, work/life balance, and other processes that have presented positive opportunities going forward.
There has never been a better time , both environmentally and commercially to seize on these opportunities, as the challenge of Climate Change has not gone away.

Wednesday, 4 December, 2019 - 16:30 to 19:30

Two Climate Forums were held on consecutive days in November to gauge people's views on what they felt the key areas were in tackling climate change in Surrey.

A healthy mix of individuals was invited from across the private, public and citizen sectors. They were also asked what practices they were carrying out at present and what role the Climate Commission could make in the future.

NET ZERO IS THE CATALYST FOR DELIVERING LEVELLING UP

22nd March, 2022 - 19:58

PCAN have just delivered their response to the Government's White Paper on Levelling Up.

Written by PCAN Policy Fellow, Brendan Curran, and following submissions from all Commissions, including Surrey, it has highlighted serious shortcomings in how the levelling up agenda links with the drive for Net Zero.

In short the Report fails to recognise the opportunities and synergies that can be gained from linking effective place-based climate action with regional inequalities.

Surrey Climate Commission oppose Northern Runway Project at Gatwick

1st December, 2021 - 18:36

SyCCom have just sent their response to the Northern Runway Consultation at Gatwick.

In it we have strongly opposed the introduction of this new live runway. Please see report below.

The extra runway would greatly increase carbon emissions at a time when we need to make reductions quickly to get back on track to our net zero targets.

It also strongly conflicts with the Central Climate Change Committee's progress report of 2021 which states that there should be no net expansion
