Climate and Nature Partnership Board

The Climate and Nature Partnership Board is comprised of volunteer expert representatives from across the county.

The Board was set up by Herefordshire Council, to advise on the county’s response to the climate and ecological emergencies.  The Board advises on actions to be taken across the 6 key themes of Energy, Housing & Buildings, Transport, Food, Waste, and Land Use and Farming.

The Board’s vision is of a thriving net zero-carbon and nature-rich Herefordshire by 2030.
