Sheffield City Council
The council runs a number of schemes to help reduce the city's environmental impact
Sheffield City Council is working hard to reduce emissions of CO2 and to prepare and adapt to a changing climate.
Air pollution and carbon emissions are pretty much from the same sources in urban areas. In Sheffield, traffic is the source of the majority of air pollution and around 25% of carbon dioxide
Across the planet the climate is changing due to the trillions of tonnes of carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere by man - but what does this mean for Sheffield?
Sheffield City Council is leading the way for low carbon transport in the city by trialing ten gas powered vehicles in their own fleet. The project has the potential to make a significant contribution to reducing Sheffields carbon footprint.
