Ceredigion Council has made a new commitment to reducing its carbon footprint with the employment of its first Energy and Carbon Reduction Manager.
It will be the new officer’s role to plan, regulate and monitor energy usage within the authority and to bring in changes to improve efficiency.
Over the coming months, the Council intends to update its Carbon Management Plan, which covers non-domestic buildings, business travel, street lighting and fleet vehicles. The new officer will play a vital role in this process.
I’m delighted by this new appointment. For many years now people in Ceredigion have shown that they place a higher than average priority on environmental sustainability and the Council is now aiming to reflect that more in its policies and practices.
