A Letter from our Chair
Invitation to support zero carbon Shrophire 2030 and Shropshire Climate Action Partnership
Shropshire Climate Action Partnership (SCAP) is a newly established partnership of the businesses and communities of Shropshire, including Shropshire Council, Telford & Wrekin Council, public sector and voluntary sector bodies and enterprises large and small.
SCAP is being set up in response to the accelerating climate crisis and the widely recognised urgent need for a coherent plan that enables us to achieve net zero carbon by 2030.
We are keen to have your support for this defining and vital process of achieving a plan for Shropshire, that will have the widest possible support from all sections of all communities across the county. We plan for broad engagement and participation from a diverse range of working groups, industry bodies and associations that will draw on the excellent work that is already ongoing across the UK and worldwide.
Invitation to be a SCAP Supporter
We would like to invite you to demonstrate your support for our goals and your commitment to help achieve net zero carbon Shropshire by 2030. To do this please sign the pledge at the end of this letter and confirm that you would like your organisation to be listed as a supporter. Please also advise us if you have done, or are doing, work towards zero carbon in your organisation or community, and that you are happy to share your findings or contribute your outputs to our overall Zero Carbon Shropshire Plan.
By signing up with us as a Supporter you will be kept in touch with our work and get the opportunity to help us from time to time when we undertake consultations and workshops, to help ensure that the ZCSP represents the views and priorities of Shropshire residents, community groups and businesses.
I very much hope we can count on your support.
Mark Fermor, Acting Chair, founding sponsors for Shropshire Climate Action Partnership
