At the launch of the Climate Change Plan for Yorkshire & Humber in March 2009, the following pledge was undertaken.
“We recognise that the climate is changing now, and that more change is in the pipeline. It will take time and coordinated international action to stabilise and reverse these changes. But that does not mean we have to wait before taking action in the region and locally.
Climate change and action to combat it and to adapt to its effects present both challenges for our region and opportunities for our economy. In developing new regional strategies we will plan for these challenges and address how best to help businesses and communities make the most of the opportunities. We will use this plan to help guide our work.
As a region we want to lead the field in living with climate change and reducing its future impact. We believe the success of Yorkshire and Humber depends on it”.
