Environment and Sustainability

With government committed to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the College of Policing identifying climate change as one of the ten most significant challenges for policing over the next ten years, the APCC has joined with its policing partners at the National Police Chiefs Council and Bluelight Commercial to launch a landmark decarbonisation programme in November 2021. With three quarters of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) setting priorities linked to the environment and sustainability in their police and crime plans, we launched this new portfolio last year to provide national leadership and focus on a critical issue for PCCs, policing and the criminal justice sector.

Joint Environment & Sustainability Leads, Joy Allen and Tim Passmore, pledge their commitment to ensuring all PCCs play their full part in achieving the Net Zero ambition in the latest Environment & Sustainability In Focus

PCCs have a critical role to play in ensuring that their forces, commissioned services, and offices are employing environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.
