First launched in 2022, the Essex County Council Climate Action Advice Packs present cost-effective, achievable solutions aimed at different demographics and situations. 

Information includes funding and volunteering opportunities, advice and support to empower action at a local level. For example, tackling regional greenhouse gas emissions and improving resilience to climate change. 

Action Advice Packs are part of Essex County Council’s broader Climate Action Plan – a £200million environmental commitment made by the local authority in 2021, updated in 2023 with an additional £50million in funding ringfenced for climate-aligned projects and initiatives.

‘These climate advice packs are fantastic resources for everyone in Essex who wants to become more sustainable,’ said Sam Kennedy, Director for Environment & Climate Action at Essex County Council. ‘Each pack signposts to links and opportunities specific for each group so we can all do our part in working towards net-zero by 2050. I am also delighted to see the launch of an easy-read version of our resident pack which will help make climate action accessible to more people across our county.’

Essex County Council also recently announced a new Climate and Planning Unit, setting out a detailed roadmap for delivering legal obligations and climate pledges related to housing and development. In January, the local authority completed a 5,000 square metre meadow at Mersea Island to support biodiversity in the region.
