What Fife Environment Partnership about?

Brings together public sector and third sector organisations to work at a strategy level on climate change in Fife. It is measures its progress against 6 key outcomes:

  • CC1 – More efficient use of resources (energy, waste and water)
  • CC2 – More energy is from low carbon supplies.
  • CC3 – Encourage more sustainable transport and travel including reducing the need to travel.
  • CC4 – Ecosystems are used sustainably and strengthened
  • CC5 – Places are adapting to cope with Climate Change (including land use, coastlines, buildings and infrastructure)
  • CC6 – People are adapting to cope with Climate Change.

FEP’s main strategy document is the “Climate Change Strategy 2014 – 2020”. It identifies key areas that we need to address to meet the challenges and take advantage of opportunities associated with climate change, and sets out six outcomes that we will work towards over the next six years.
