Aberdeenshire Council is developing a route-map to identify what needs to happen across the organisation in order to meet a 75% reduction in its own emissions by the end of the decade. The development of the route map will involve engaging with services across the Council to identify opportunities for emission reductions and the costs and savings associated with them.
Still in its early stages, the project will be completed over the next 6 months from November 2021 – April 2022.
“This critical piece of work may also help us to identify the short-term and long-term resources we as a council will require in order for Aberdeenshire to become a Net Zero region by 2045. It will also provide opportunities for joining up national and local priorities and potentially help us to identify projects ready for future funding.” - Councillor Peter Argyle, Chair of the Infrastructure Services Committee
