The climate emergency

Climate change is having a major impact on our planet.  

On 9 July 2019, Cheltenham Borough Council declared a 'Climate Emergency' and committed to become a net zero carbon council and borough by 2030.

To help the council understand the actions that will be needed to address the climate emergency a 'carbon neutral Cheltenham' report was commissioned, which was approved in October 2019.

The report, 'Carbon Neutral Cheltenham: Leadership through Stewardship', sets out the baseline carbon emissions for the council and the borough and a roadmap to achieving net zero carbon by 2030.
