Cork City Energy Agency commissioned the first climate change strategy for the City Council in June 2010. The purpose of this document is to set out the current international and national policies in relation to global warming and thereafter to detail various actions which Cork City Council will take in support of same. These actions are designed to assist in reducing the level of greenhouse gasses at local level. The plan itself is considered to be an evolving document. It will be the subject of annual progress reports and multi-annual reviews/revisions having regard to progress achieved in meeting the targets set and the evolution of our understanding of climate change and its impacts.
