Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) for Oxford

On 29 September 2014 Council agreed to support the Covenant of Mayors initiative and authorised the Lord Mayor to sign the Covenant adhesion form. By signing up to the Covenant of Mayors the Council committed to submit a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) for the City of Oxford. The SEAP does not set any new targets but estimates our baseline emissions in 2005 and captures the actions and policies that the Council and its partners are implementing to reduce carbon emissions. These actions will help to meet the Council’s target of reducing carbon emissions by 40% by 2020 across the whole city. This report will request approval of our aims, objectives and emission reduction target for the City and adoption of the action plan attached to the Sustainable Energy Strategy.
