Net Zero Carbon Council Plan
Alongside the borough-wide net zero action plan, we are also committed to making sure the Council’s own operations are net zero by 2030. The plan outlines how the Council intends to build on the previous decade’s achievements which have seen Council emissions reduce by over 70% since 2009. Key to the success so far has been the switch to LED street lighting, reductions in emissions from waste collection services and continual improvements to our buildings through energy efficiency works and responsible management.
As one of the major employers in the borough, reaching net zero by 2030 helps to send a strong message to locally based businesses that it’s both realistic and achievable to become net zero in a relatively short space of time.
