What is mitigation?

Mitigation is taking steps to reduce the risk, severity of the impact or the probability of occurance, ideally in a systemative and timely approach. Examples of climate mitigation include solar panels, wind farms, electric vehicles and reducing emissions. The Grampains New Energy Taskforce (GNET) is leading the region’s emissions reduction efforts. To find out more information about GNET
