Fife Council is taking action to reduce carbon emissions that cause climate change. We believe there are more benefits for Fife and it's community if we all act now.
“Climate change is one of the greatest global threats we face. Addressing it is vital but, in doing so, it also presents one of our society's greatest opportunities.
We believe that the transition to a low carbon society is an essential investment for the people of Scotland, our environment and for future generations. It is also an important contribution that Scotland can make as a good global citizen to a global challenge.
Simply put, a low carbon Scotland is a better Scotland” (International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) 2013)
