Read our adaptation report, which sets out our climate change risks and our plans to address them
Our core business involves protecting and improving the environment of England and Wales for people and wildlife and contributing to sustainable development. It is important that we understand and respond to the factors that impact on these outcomes.
The Climate Change Act 2008 gives Government the power to direct public bodies and statutory undertakers, such as utilities companies, to report on how they will address their climate change risks. This is called the Adaptation Reporting Power.
Under this reporting power we have produced our adaptation report, which sets out our climate change risks and our plans to address them.
