The climate team is a tool for citizen participation, enabling citizens to become locally involved in their local authority's climate and environmental policy.
By communicating the successes and benefits of climate protection and adaptation to all parties involved, the local authority aims to encourage imitation and broad participation. In the short, medium and long term, this should be reflected in the energy consumption and CO2 figures, as well as in the key figures for the production of renewable electricity. These do not just apply to municipal properties, but to the entire municipality, including private households, agriculture, businesses and service providers.
For this reason, local authority-wide assessments are drawn up to show the short-, medium- and long-term progress made by the local authority as a whole in terms of energy and climate protection.
