Question weight


Criteria met if climate action (alternatively called Sustainability or Environment) is listed as one of the council's core priorities or equivalent. It must have its own heading or section and a net zero target date must be referenced.

The net-zero target date must be an area-wide target, either the UK Government's national target, the devolved nation's target or the council's area-wide net zero target.


A corporate plan is a business planning document that sets out the council's future priorities and objectives to help ensure that the council manages its resources effectively.

For County Councils the document is called a(Strategic) Economic Plan

We will accept other language for target dates being used such as carbon neutrality.
