Tackling climate change is one of our key priorities.
In 2019 the Council declared a Climate Emergency and pledged to become a carbon-neutral district by 2030. This means reducing our organisational emissions to net zero and using the Council’s influence and powers to reduce district-wide emissions to reach net zero too.
In 2020 we published the Environment Strategy (2020) which identified the key priorities and action areas to meet this target. In 2023 we refreshed our approach and developed our new Climate Strategy.
