Climate Change

Climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the world. In Highland, we are already feeling the effects as increasing global temperatures bring changes in weather patterns including more frequent floods and severe storms.
HEN provides a link with communities across Highland working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Search HEN’s Directory to find organisations that currently work to tackle climate change.

Carbon CLEVER 

HEN acts a secretariat for the Highland Environmental Forum (HEF) which is part of the Highland Community Planning Partnership.
The Highland Environment Forum aims to strengthen co-ordination of partners’ activities in delivering the environmental outcomes of Highland’s Single Outcome Agreement; and this includes addressing climate change. 
The Carbon CLEVER initiative run by The Highland Council aims to deliver a carbon neutral Inverness in a low carbon Highland by 2025 - and partnership working is key to realising the ambitious aims of this initiative.
In support of this, Highland Environment Forum set up a working group tasked with reviewing the Highland Climate Change Declaration.  HEN is represented on the steering group by Alison Craig, Vice Chair of HEN.
