QUESTION BY MR GREG PARKER TO COUNCILLOR ELWYN WILLIAMS, CHAIR OF THE DYFED PENSION FUND COMMITTEE

“Following Carmarthenshire County Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency in February 2019, is the Council aware that by divesting their pension investments from fossil fuel companies and re-investing directly in renewable energy, they can provide their members a more secure investment with a hundred times higher return, and enable the whole of Carmarthenshire to be powered with renewable energy? This is explained by Carmarthenshire Energy’s ‘Really Simple Plan to Tackle the Climate Emergency’ http://www. carmarthenshireenergy.org/YSG/climate-emergency. By pioneering this model, the Council can set an example nationally and globally for the world to be powered completely renewably by 2045 with no new funds required.”

NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLOR ROB JAMES:- pdf icon PDF 111 KB

“This Council:

 

·         Notes that Carmarthenshire Council unanimously declared a climate emergency earlier this year, with a commit to make the County Council a net zero carbon local authority by 2030.

·         Notes the conclusions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that “we are already seeing the consequences of 1°C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice”;

·         Notes that the IPCC report stated that global emissions of carbon dioxide must peak by 2020 to keep the planet below 1.5C;

·         Notes the campaigning and research by Extinction Rebellion, Friends of the Earth and others, on the holdings Local Government Pension funds, including Dyfed, have in fossil fuels companies;

·         Believes that current plans are nowhere near strong enough to keep temperatures below the so-called safe limit.

·         Calls on Dyfed Pension Fund to divest from fossil fuels within the next two years and invest the funds in local renewable energy schemes.”

NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLOR GARY JONES:-

“That Carmarthenshire Council:

 

·         Acknowledges that the Public Service Vehicle Accessibility Regulations 2000 has created a legal duty to ensure that from January 2020 paid-for public buses must accommodate wheelchair users.

·         Is concerned that many parents and pupils were not made aware that pupils would not be able to travel on their usual route to school at the start of this academic year and believe that those not yet affected must be contacted by the end of this term to understand the coming changes.

·         Must ensure that pupils are able to travel to and from school in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner.

·         Calls on the Executive Board to provide free transportation to all those affected for the remaining financial year, whilst reviewing future provision for students.”
