Sustainable development and climate change

Climate change

Midlothian Council was one of the first local authorities to sign Scotland's Climate Change Declaration, publicly acknowledging the challenges and opportunities that climate change brings.

We are required to support national climate change programmes. Our Climate Change Strategy sets out how we do so. We encourage and work with others in our community to adapt to a changing climate, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and make public our commitment to action.

We also must report each year how we have been supporting national climate change programmes.
