North East of England Climate Coalition (NEECCo) launch

‘Becoming England’s Greenest region’

30 March 2021 - Latest news, environmental news

believe housing is pleased to announce its support for the North East of England Climate Coalition (NEECCo), which has today (Tuesday, 30 March 2021) officially launched our collective ambition for the north east region of ‘Becoming England’s Greenest region’.

The cross-sector coalition is bringing the north east region together to tackle the climate emergency, to reverse ecological collapse and deliver a just transition to a new green economy.

NEECCo is England’s first regional cross-sector climate coalition and is calling for every individual, household, business and organisation to sign up and make a pledge to do their bit via their website.

The unique history of the north east as the birthplace of innovations such as steam engines, deep pit mining, electric turbines and power stations places a responsibility and an opportunity to be at the forefront of the next industrial revolution – one based on a green economy with good jobs, better quality of life and enhanced natural assets for everyone to enjoy.

Sam Tullock, Environmental Manager, at believe housing said: “We are proud to be a key partner in NEECCo alongside a wide range of public sector, private sector, and community sector organisations.

“We truly believe that we can go further and faster together, for the benefit of our people, communities, and economy in the north east.
