E.ON backing Coventry’s climate change action

Coventry Editorial 21st Feb, 2022 Updated: 21st Feb, 2022   0

THE NEW Independent Climate Change Board for Coventry has identified ways for the city to tackle climate change.

Five key themes have been identified by the Board for and each is led by influential leaders of key organisations and institutions in the city.

The activities include how the city use energy, support wildlife, and address inequalities.

Chris Lovatt, Chief Operating Officer, UK Solutions for E.ON is the new chair of the Low emission development pathway group.

Chris said: “Coventry is E.ON’s home city so naturally we’re very happy to use our expertise and experiences to support Coventry in becoming a cleaner, greener city and drive forward plans to take action against the climate crisis and create a more sustainable city.”

“At E.ON we work alongside cities, local authorities and with residents to look at how we can help them reduce their energy use, cut their bills and carbon emissions, whether that is by better insulating properties or giving people a better understanding of their energy consumption.

“We are also applying new technologies; installing heat pumps, solar panels, batteries and getting ready for electric vehicles and finding the best ways to electrify our heating and transportation needs, which now make up the majority of emissions across the country.”

Margot James, Executive Chair for WMG at the University of Warwick, and former minister for culture, communications and creative industries, is the chair of the Coventry Climate Change Board.

Margot said: “Coventry’s Climate Change Board is bringing together key city stakeholders to draw up a set of actions that will meet the carbon reduction targets set by the Council.

“I appreciate very much the excellent support the board is getting from local industry, utilities, public services and the voluntary sector.”

The new Climate Change Board met for its second meeting recently.

Coun Jim O’Boyle, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Regeneration and Climate Change at the Council, added: “It’s great to have experts steering the work of the board and I’m sure that we will be able to share innovative approaches.”
