Santa Luċija Action Plan & Environmental Programme 2012- 2020
The Santa Luċija Local Council already took up the challenge in signing the Covenant of Mayors in favour of sustainable energy and to commit voluntarily to increasing energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources on their territories. Through this commitment, Santa Luċija as one of the signatories aims to meet and exceed the European Union 20% CO2 reduction objective by 2020. The Local Council in this commitment went a step further in devising a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in May 2010 and devising projects with tangible results promoting Energy Efficiency as in the case of the new lighting system installed with the collaboration of the Housing Authority in 2011 for the trim trail.
This Action Plan and Environmental Programme takes stock of these objectives and goes beyond the SEAP. It is also is also committed to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact specifically to principles; 7,8 and 9. This Action Plan and Environmental Programme also refers to the EU Programmes and funding opportunities to target earmarked areas in the urban and rural areas of Santa Luċija and develop sustainable and eco-friendly projects.
