We have been working with Ashden, The Centre for Alternative Technology, APSE and Friends of the Earth on a Checklist of features that should be included in a Local Authority Action PlanThe-Climate-Action-Plan-Checklist_Jan21

Download the Pull-Out Checklist. The Pull-Out Checklist is a condensed list of headings from the main Action Plan Checklist. It is perfect to download or print. But make sure to use the Pull-Out Checklist in conjunction with the Action Plan Checklist for best practice examples and the full analysis.
A very useful document for comparing Authorities with each other: and identifying some gaps; very many thanks. It will be interesting to see how the action will fit the preparations; but a good start.
One of the most contentious issues in relation to climate change/fossil fuels investments is perhaps LOCAL AUTHORITY PENSIONS SCHEMES. These are administered by Pensions Pools, and seem to operate independently of their respective Local Authorities.
I can’t find any reference in your report to the issue of pensions schemes. Have I missed something?
Thank you for the scorecard. I work for a consultancy helping local authorities with their climate action plans, and this will hopefully be a wake up call for the authorities that really are doing nothing and spur some of them into action.
