Surrey County Council’s Cabinet has approved the principles of Surrey’s Climate Change Delivery Plan which sets out how we all need to act to contribute to our ambition of Net-Zero carbon emissions for the County Council by 2030, and for the whole county by 2050.
Residents will be asked over the coming months to get involved and put forward their ideas to help make Surrey a greener county that is fit for future generations. We want to hear from communities leading the way on zero carbon, schools that are gearing up to become shining green beacons, businesses that are keen to be innovate around decarbonisation and all residents who would like to help us turn our target into a reality.
A dedicated newsletter, available here, has been launched to keep people up to date about what actions are already being taken to reduce carbon emissions and residents can also contribute ideas via our climate change platform which will help us to develop the Delivery Plan.
Cabinet Member for Environment, Marisa Heath said, “As a Council we are fully committed to achieving our target to be a Net-Zero county by 2050 to tackle the climate emergency we face. We have a range of programmes underway and much more planned, to reduce carbon emissions and ensure our county is a healthier place to live.
“However, we can’t do this alone. We all need to play our part to avoid further climate change and that’s why we really want to work with our residents to hear both your ideas and any concerns or questions you have so we can support you to make changes. This is about you, your community, your school, your home, your business. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear when things happen.”
