YCC’s 2023 Action Plan
YCC’s 2023 action plan is made up of 20 steps which will be carefully developed over a 12-month period, ending with a re-assessment of our charity’s carbon footprint and evaluation report to measure our success.
Approved by our Board of Trustees in August 2022, the Sustainability Policy pledges to act as a sustainable charity that cares for the future environment and the future of the children and families who live in it.
The forum is made up of employees, volunteers, tenants, governors and service users, who work collectively to improve the charity’s sustainability initiatives and provide valuable input.
