Tipperary County Council Climate Action Plan


Carrick on Suir

In accordance with the Local Government Climate Action Charter and the National Climate Action Plan Delivering Effective Climate Action 2030 (CCMA), the Council is required to reduce its own Green House Gas emissions by 51% and to deliver a 50% improvement in energy efficiency by 2030.  In addition, the Council is required to advocate for, influence and co-ordinate climate action in its own policies and practices, and in its many dealings with citizens, business and communities. The County Council Climate Action Office is supported by a new Climate Action governance structure, with a ‘Climate Action Team’ across all Council service areas reporting to a ‘Climate Action Steering Group’ at senior management level. 

A key function of the local Authority is the preparation of a Local Authority Climate Action Plan (LACAP) for the period 2024 - 2029. It is the function of the LACAP to set out how the Council will deliver on climate action (Climate Mitigation and Climate Adaptation) in areas within its own remit, and how the Council through its actions, will seek to influence, facilitate and advocate for climate action across other sectors and communities in how they achieve their own climate actions and targets. Documentation relating to the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and the Appropriate Assessment (AA) of the LACAP is provided below. 

The LACAP was made at the plenary meeting of Tipperary County Council on the 12th of February 2024.
