About our work

Sustainable Uttoxeter is a community-led project with a steering committee of  Local Government, Academia, Business & Industry Membership Groups, Healthcare, VCSEs, community members and residents. The aim of the project is to regenerate our town for current and future generations, as a climate friendly town but like a lot of environmental action it also means that we will be improving the local economy, generating business opportunities, employment prospects and enhancing local facilities.

How the project
was founded

The Globe Foundation is a non profit eco centre based in Uttoxeter, through the work they were doing, a clear need arose for a structured and collaborative climate action programme that looks at environmental and social values. 

After an initial online event to gauge interest, a steering committee of local partners was developed and the Sustainable Uttoxeter Environment & Climate Commission was born, bringing together community, industry, local government and academia. 

Since then, the Commission has been working towards developing working forums and creating a detailed, science-based action plan for achieving net zero by 2030.
