BACCC launches annual report on year two
10th March 2022
The Bristol Advisory Committee on Climate Change (BACCC) has published its Annual Report on Year Two, a review of the second year since its formation.
The report gives an overview of its activities in 2021, progress made towards set priorities, and an analysis of impact and reflections on progress made towards Bristol’s carbon neutral and climate resilience target.
Activities in 2021 have included engaging with the national Committee on Climate Change and looking at what their report findings mean for Bristol, as well as beginning to review progress of the delivery of the One City Climate Strategy (OCCS). Whilst the report notes general comments on the city’s advancement towards its 2030 climate and nature goals, BACCC will publish its full review of progress with the OCCS in 2022.
BACCC has identified the following priorities for the year ahead:
- To understand and influence key national developments and their implications for Bristol, identifying opportunities and challenges for Bristol’s 2030 ambition, working closely with key local, national and international agencies.
- To increase the focus within Bristol on climate risk and adaptation needs.
- To monitor progress of delivery of the One City Climate Strategy.
- To support local Climate Emergency communication and engagement activity.
- To increase the focus on a just transition to all One City Boards and Bristol City Council, and as part of the One City Climate Strategy planning processes.
