Climate Change

Climate change is a key policy area for WEL. We work closely with Stop Climate Chaos Cymru to influence policy and legislation that addresses climate change mitigation and adaptation in Wales, including the impact of Wales' activities beyond its borders. 

WEL would like to see:

  • substantial emission abatement programmes, such as improving energy efficiency in homes and enhancing the carbon storage capacity of the natural environment, until the first carbon budget is set through the Environment (Wales) Act
  • an effective land use and natural environment adaptation plan
