Energy self-sufficiency has not been reached by any council in the UK as of yet, but we are well on our way to our goal of being carbon neutral by 2030.
- In 2009, our emissions were 28,064 tonnes CO2
- In 2019, they were 13,954 tonnes CO2 – a reduction of over 50%
- In 2030, they will be net zero – and we have confidence we can achieve this
Work to achieve carbon neutrality is well underway and our projects over the last decade show that we are making good progress, but there is still more to do.
Our projects to date
We have developed and led multiple projects in our mission to become a greener council, and to encourage our communities to be more eco-friendly.
