Cheshire East Council partner with environmental organisation

Cheshire East Council have announced that they have partnered with the environmental organisation, The Mersey Forest, in order to hit their target of making the Council carbon neutral by 2025.

The Council will work with The Mersey Forest to dramatically increase their tree-planting efforts, across the region to increase their focus on environmental sustainability.

Councillor Nick Mannion, Cheshire East cabinet member for environment and regeneration, said:

"It's great news that we have joined The Mersey Forest Partnership.

"This joint working will enable us to create high quality woodland that offsets our emissions, as well as providing a range of other benefits to the natural environment, including engaging with and supporting community development."

Other local councils have partnered with The Mersey Forest including Cheshire West and Chester, Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St. Helens and Warrington.

By partnering with The Mersey Forest, a local authority has access to funding and expertise that can help Cheshire East to deliver their carbon neutral ambitions, as well as the objectives set out in their environment strategy.

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
 

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
