Information about actions taken since climate emergency declared

Hugh Davenport made this Official Information request to Canterbury Regional Council

The request was successful.

From: Hugh Davenport

Dear Canterbury Regional Council,

Since you declared a climate emergency, I would like to know what tangible steps you have taken to improve the climate change problem. I would also like to know what steps you have planned for the immediate future, with timelines and action points required.

For all of these actions made or planned, I would like to see data showing how it improved (or will improve).

If no actions have been made or planned to date, I would like to request the reason why the council declared an emergency then did nothing to follow through with that declaration.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
