Climate and Ecology Strategy annual report - 2023 to 2024

Published: 10 January 2024


The borough has made significant strides since we declared a climate and ecological emergency in 2019.

Despite challenging economic and political conditions, and the context of a global pandemic, we are delivering on our ambitious Climate and Ecology Strategy (PDF, 624KB), developed in collaboration with residents and adopted in 2021.

The strategy outlined 5 challenges for the borough’s transition to a low-carbon and resilient future:

  • homes, buildings and energy
  • travel
  • things we use
  • ecology
  • adapting to a changing climate.
The Queen Caroline project has improved drainage, boosted biodiversity and reduced the risk of flooding on the estate.

The following pages update on our progress in reducing our emissions, and just some of the positive action being taken by the council and our community to help deliver a resilient and thriving borough in 2030.
