The Council was awarded funding to plant a million trees in the Forest of Burnley. The bid was prepared by a member of staff from the Planning Service. They have developed a Carbon Management Plan which includes advice on how all local organisations can embed carbon management into their own organisations and the Council itself is following this plan. They have also signed the Nottingham declaration on climate change and also signed the 10-10 initiative pledging to cut their carbon footprint by 10% by 2010. This is on top of a wider pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 25% by 2013. In signing up to the 10-10 initiative the Council took a leadership role and actively challenges other organisations to follow suit.
