Notice of Motion 5 by Councillors Adam-McGregor and Don
“Environment and Climate Emergency

The Scottish Government on 14 May 2019 declared that there is a global climate emergency. The evidence is irrefutable and the science is clear.

We all have a part to play: Government, councils, individuals, communities, businesses, other organisations. It is not too late to turn things around.

Council therefore agrees

1. To recognise that there is an environment and climate emergency;

2. That this emergency could impact on all areas of Council policy;

3. That a cross party working group is established to examine in detail what actions could be taken to address this emergency;

4. That officers begin, without delay, to prepare options for the working group to consider.”
