That this House congratulates Carmarthenshire Council for becoming the first local authority in Wales to launch a strategy to become net-zero carbon neutral by 2030; notes that the highly-ambitious strategy of the County Council, approved by the full council at its meeting on 12 February 2020, sets out actions to cut carbon emissions and measures to offset the negative effects of C02; believes that this landmark strategy will greatly benefit local residents and global citizens; pays tribute to local environmental activists for engaging positively with the council on this issue; encourages local authorities across Wales to follow the example of Carmarthenshire on climate action; and urges both the UK and Welsh Governments to adopt more ambitious targets to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
