Lancashire 2050 - A strategic framework for Lancashire

Environment and climate

We will meet our low carbon ambitions, promote clean energy, and enhance our natural environment.


  • To substantially reduce carbon emissions and energy demand, with our approach to housing and transport helping secure that transition
  • To increase energy generation from low carbon sources, including renewables
  • To improve the resilience of infrastructure, assets and services to climate change
  • To significantly grow the low carbon and environment sectors of Lancashire’s economy
  • To retain our rich biodiversity and natural environment

What this will mean for our residents

We will have enhanced our natural environment, which will be enjoyed by more Lancashire residents.

We will be a net zero county protecting our environment for future generations.

Lancashire will be recognised as a place where low carbon businesses can invest and thrive, and people can live a low carbon lifestyle.
