Lots of brilliant work is already underway to tackle climate change but we must go further and faster if we are to meet our target of Net Zero emissions by 2038. Our draft Climate Action Plan is here to make sure that happens.

- Work with land and nature to protect us in the long term

West Yorkshire’s Mayor Tracy Brabin has committed to putting in place a Fair Work Charter for the region.
By signing up to the Charter, our region’s employers will be making a clear commitment to a range of good employment practices that actively tackle the significant disparities which are standing in the way of ‘levelling-up’ our region, and doing so will be a practical way in which the Mayor can give those leading and aspiring employers the public recognition, support and encouragement they deserve for their efforts in providing fair work.
We are very keen to hear your views, the views of businesses from all sectors, and of all sizes, and from all our communities and groups, including those voices that are seldom heard.
Your views will help to ensure that the Charter is:
• designed to be ambitious in terms of clearly setting out the Mayor’s expectations for fair work
• practically achievable by all our region’s employers and of tangible benefit to them, and not just those in specific sectors, or our largest employers
• of clear benefit and value to all, including our most disadvantaged communities and groups
By taking part in this consultation you will help us to understand what employment practices are most relevant to different types and sizes of employers, and which will deliver those tangible benefits to employers, employees, communities and West Yorkshire.
Details of the consultation and how to respond are here https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/fwc
Please note that the consultation closes on 22 April 2022.
