Areas of focus

Tall grass and spiky teasels, blue sky and fluffy white coulds

There are eight key areas of focus we believe are needed for us to become a net zero Council and Borough by the year 2030. The ambition for each topic is broadly covered, together with a list of the actions we will take to help reach our net zero goal. This list will remain fluid to keep up with changes in government policy, the emergence of new technologies and lessons learned through experience.

An annual progress report will be produced by our climate emergency team to monitor and evaluate our progress against the list of actions set out here:

  1. Leading by example
  2. Decision making, policies, plans and strategies
  3. Finance, funding, investment and procurement
  4. Buildings and energy
  5. Active travel, transport and air quality
  6. Natural environment and biodiversity
  7. Water and waste
  8. Collective action - influencing, engaging, campaigning and behaviour change
