The Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) cabinet has agreed to participate in two major international initiatives: the Race to Zero campaign and the Carbon Disclosure Project.

The former is a global campaign focused on rallying leadership across business, cities, regions, and investors to create a healthy, resilient and zero-carbon recovery that unlocks sustainable and inclusive growth.

The latter is a worldwide environmental disclosure system that helps cities, regions and companies to disclose their environmental data and impact.

Involvement in these initiatives will feed into the energy vision for the region, which was created in collaboration with the Welsh Government Energy Service and was approved by the regional cabinet last December.

Kellie Beirne, CCR city deal director, said: “Both of these global collaborations will undoubtedly shine a harsh spotlight on the substantive challenges we need to face in our collective endeavours; but they also illuminate the determination we have to create a decarbonised CCR that can build a prosperous future in a sustainable world.”
