Climate change consultation

We have a vision to become the greenest London borough, to protect and enhance the environment, and to provide a brighter prospect for future generations.

During the past 10 years, our council has made significant progress to reduce carbon emissions and we have now committed to be carbon neutral by 2030. This commitment was made at full council in January 2020 in the form of a climate emergency declaration.  Acting on the declaration, we have drafted a climate change action plan, which is now ready for public consultation.

The plan focuses on the following 7 themes and outlines our targets to achieve the goal of becoming carbon neutral.

  1. Community leadership
  2. The council's own operations
  3. Building better places
  4. Using clean and green energy
  5. Waste management
  6. Climate change adaptation and mitigation
  7. Carbon offsetting

It also supports other objectives, including air quality, fuel poverty and preventing flooding.
