At Rother District Council, elected members and staff alike recognise that protection and enhancement of the environment is the key to sustaining a high quality of life in the district.
We recognise that our own activities have an impact on the environment, that we have a responsibility to ensure that these impacts are positive, and that our use of finite natural resources is minimised.
Our vision is to stabilise and progressively reduce our environmental footprint; to progressively reduce our carbon dioxide emissions and make sure our estate and services are adapted to the future impacts and opportunities of climate change; and to contribute positively to Rother's character, local environmental quality and natural environment. We will do this by identifying the potential for cost savings wherever possible and committing to standards in areas such as:
- Our decision making
- Our estate
- Our travel and transport
- Our procurement
- Our construction and
- Our workforce
Please see our Environment Policy, as approved by Cabinet on 12 April 2010 for further information.
