After we declared a climate emergency in February 2019, we set to work.
In order to reduce North Somerset's carbon emissions, we recognise the need to make significant changes to the way we live, work, and govern. We see these changes as a unique opportunity to improve our quality of life. This, in turn, will create an area that’s healthier, better to live in and fairer for everyone.
We need to be ambitious to combat climate change. But we needed your help. From December 2019 to January 2020, we consulted on a draft Climate Change Strategy. In response, 81% agreed with our aim to become carbon neutral by 2030.
From this strategy, we also developed an action plan on how to implement these changes. A refreshed version of the action plan is now available.
