The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate was created by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority in 2020, on the recommendation of the Combined Authority Board. The task of the Commission is to provide authoritative recommendations to help the region mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change, enabling us to meet the commitment to eradicating net carbon emissions across the area by 2050.
The intention is that it will be a shot in the arm for the debate on how best to reduce carbon emissions and enhance our natural environment, moving us on from examining the depth of the issue to the successful delivery of high impact solutions at scale and pace.
It is established in the first instance for a year, during which it will produce an first interim report by February 2021. Its full report will include recommendations about future arrangements for advice and analysis on climate change for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
