Sustainability strategy and Net Zero Action Plan

Our Sustainability Strategy and Net Zero Action Plan is currently being developed. This document sets out all the actions we plan to take over the next 3 years, to reduce our environmental impacts, improve the environmental sustainability of our operations and services, ensure we are resilient to changing environmental conditions and act as a strong community leader to ensure action continues to be taken across all parts of our community.

The document also sets out how we plan to begin reducing our emissions to Net Zero by 2030.

The document will focus on the following core themes. 

  1. Governance and Leadership for Sustainability and Climate Change    
  2. Reducing Energy Use and Emissions    
  3. Improving Transport and Air Quality
  4. Nature Restoration and Sustainable Food
  5. Adapting to a Changing Climate and Protecting Water Resources

You will be able to download the main document and action plan from this page in due course. 

Support our Sustainability Strategy and Net Zero Action Plan

It is our hope that local businesses, organisations, schools and groups will recognise the scale of the task required and support our strategy by developing their own priorities and plans to improve the sustainability of their day-to-day activities. 

We invite you to email us a link to your own sustainability strategies so that we can learn about what you are doing to help create the healthy, low carbon and sustainable future we all aspire to. 

If you would like to get involved with local events groups and meetings about environmental sustainability, please visit our Getting Involved page.

The following local organisations have pledged to support our strategy by committing to do all they can to become carbon neutral by 2030 and championing sustainability across the community.
