Items Of Business
Report by Chief Executive.
There was submitted a report by the Chief Executive regarding £0.698m funding allocated to support the Council in progressing its response to the climate emergency through a Climate Change Action Fund which would be submitted to the Leadership Board being held on 24 February 2021.

A number of funding proposals, detailed in Appendix 1 of the report, had been developed which could be supported through the fund.  These proposals would assist the Council in working innovatively to reduce and offset carbon emissions in Renfrewshire, change behaviours and support engagement with local people, businesses and communities, in addition to accelerating existing programmes of change around for example a “green” fleet. A critical focus would be undertaking feasibility studies within specific services and analysis of measures and opportunities, which would ensure the Council was well positioned to secure external investment to support the implementation of initiatives at scale. 
DECIDED:  That the funding proposals detailed at Appendix 1 of the report, with £0.698m to be allocated from the Climate Change Action Fund to support those initiatives outlined, be noted and submitted to the Leadership Board being held on 24 February 2021.
