Have you signed the Shropshire Council ePetition…

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report was clear that urgent action is essential if we are to limit global temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees C.
This is a huge challenge and achieving net zero carbon for the council is much more likely to be achieved if a target is set. 2030 is the date for which we should aim.
