Climate Change Strategy

Closed 4 Oct 2023

Opened 16 Aug 2023


Climate Change Strategy front coverOur Climate Change Strategy sets out a framework for action on climate change and achieving our targets of reaching net zero emissions by 2040 for the Council’s own operation and 2045 for the Clackmannanshire area.

It also outlines why net zero matters and summarises the science behind climate change.

The Strategy has been updated to reflect input from communities through five climate change forums that were held across Clackmannanshire from September 2022 to March 2023.

Why your views matter

Your input will shape the Climate Change Strategy and we will respond to all of the feedback that you provide in this consultation.

To be as transparent as possible, a summary of all of your feedback, including how we have updated the strategy in response to it, will be added to an appendix of a report that goes to Council seeking approval of the Climate Change Strategy.

We will also ensure that all of the responses are anonymous so you cannot be identified by your response despite it being in the public domain.

If you have any questions, please contact

Information for completing the questionnaire

The questionnaire has ten sections as follows:

  1. About you
  2. Your Views on Climate Change
  3. Climate Change Framework and Engagement
  4. Strategic Themes and Action
  5. Climate Change Strategy As a Whole
  6. Future Participation
  7. Climate Change Communication

  9. Submission
  10. Confirmation

Some questions in sections 3 to 5 of the questionnaire refer to specific parts of the Climate Change Strategy. 

Information on which section of the strategy each of these questions refer to is provided so we recommend completing these parts of the questionnaire with the Climate Change Strategy open in another tab.

What happens next

After this consultation closes, we will collate all of the responses and update the strategy to reflect your feedback.

The strategy will be taken to Council shortly after the consultation closes.
