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.
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.
