Climate Change is increasingly impacting on our everyday lives and evidence suggests that extreme weather events will intensify in the coming decades. At local government level, the local authority is the first responder in such situations and over the past number of years Tipperary County Council has implemented both climate mitigation actions through the Sustainable Energy Action plan for Tipperary and more recently delivered actions to address Climate Adaptation.
As your council we are working for all our communities to address climate change through a series of climate actions that improve our energy efficiency and contribute to making the county resilient to the challenges of climate change through the Climate Adaptation Strategy and through the Sustainable Energy Action plan
To meet our commitments and targets for the next five years, the Climate Adaptation Strategy will be implemented and the commitments agreed under the Climate Charter
