My Department is engaging with councils and the Local Government Association, as well as other departments in Westminster, to determine what action is being taken across the local government sector in response to the climate challenge, and what support would be appropriate to ensure that the least active councils level up their endeavours, and that best practice from the most active councils is disseminated across the sector.
