Powys County Council is a unitary authority for the Welsh county of Powys – one of the most sparsely populated counties in Wales and England.
With a workforce of around 8,000 providing services for a population of about 131,000 (Population Estimates Unit, ONS), the Council is a major employer in a county that sees agriculture, tourism and light industry as the main business areas.
Like any large organisation, Powys County Council has significant effects on the local environment. We are proud of our positive impacts – for example, waste recycling, built heritage, renewable energy, sustainable development and biodiversity. In addition, we are committed to reducing our negative impacts on the environment – for example, by minimising both waste production and energy consumption. We also work with our partners, suppliers and contractors towards achieving sustainable solutions.
