Criteria

Criteria met if the council has a role such as Chair of Environment Committee, Cabinet Member for Environment, Chair of Environment and Climate Change Scrutiny Committee or any title with the words Climate Change, Climate Action, Climate Emergency, Environmental Sustainability, Environment or similar in it.
This role can be merged with another role, such as Environment and Transport.

Clarifications

Councils are run by a cabinet or committee structure. A cabinet structure is where there is a council leader and cabinet members (all from the same governing party/parties) that make decisions on Council policy.
A committee structure is where councils are divided into politically balanced committees that make the decisions.

A Climate Champion (listed as a responsibility) is not valid for a point and neither is Chair or Cabinet member for Environmental Services.
