Who are we?
The Lincoln Climate Commission emerged from a collaboration with the City of Lincoln Council, Siemens Energy, Transition Lincoln and the University of Lincoln.
Since then the group has expanded to include the valuable input from a range of businesses and organisations, as well as members of the public, who wish to work together to make a positive choice on issues relating to energy, carbon, weather and climate. The Lincoln Climate Commission is part of the wider Place-Based Climate Action Network.
In each newsletter, we'll introduce some members of the Commission and its working groups, so that you can get to know us better. Subgroups include:

The Sustainability Toolkit
The Lincoln Sustainability Toolkit has been created by the Lincoln Climate Commission as a one stop guide to all things sustainable. It includes everything from saving energy to reducing plastics at home. Learn about local cycle routes and how to easily transition from carbon consumer to carbon saver.
The Sustainability Toolkit will be updated regularly to reflect changes across the sector.
Success Stories in Lincolnshire
The Lincoln Climate Commission is looking for examples of individuals, businesses, or community groups that have successfully implemented sustainability principles in the running of their homes, operations or engagement practices.
We would like to share these examples as case studies on our website, in order to inspire others to think differently about how they manage their environmental and social impact.
If you'd like to contribute a case study, please complete the below form and send it back to us.
Please download the templates from Google Drive and send your edited versions to us.
The next meeting of the Lincoln Climate Commission will take place on April 23rd 2021. Look out for our next newsletter in June.
