Event description
Help us to shape Hounslow's Climate Emergency Action Plan

About this Event

The council wants to create a borough where residents feel proud to live and work and which is clean, green and sustainable. In June 2019, Borough Council declared a climate emergency and committed to developing a Climate Emergency Action Plan, setting out how the council will work towards becoming carbon neutral, and ultimately zero carbon, as soon as possible.

Working in partnership with independent consultants Eunomia Consulting and using the ideas generated at the public event hosted in October 2019: ‘Addressing the Climate Emergency’, we have now produced the first draft Climate Emergency Action Plan which outlines:

  • The council’s and the wider borough carbon footprint; a target to achieve net zero direct carbon emissions from council activities by 2030, alongside a significant reduction in borough wide emissions focussing on those areas we have most influence,
  • Best practice and knowledge sharing from other Local Authorities and organisations;
  • Actions that can be delivered over a ten-year period that will enable the council to achieve the proposed target as well as influence a reduction in wider borough emissions.
  • The co-benefits of delivering multiple actions and the role national government needs to play;
  • The funding opportunities and the governance arrangements for delivering the plan.

  • Learn about the Hounslow Climate Emergency Action Plan
  • Provide us with feedback on the draft actions we have identified to reduce the council’s carbon footprint
  • Provide us with feedback on the draft actions we have identified to influence the wider borough’s carbon footprint
  • Find out how we are working with partners to influence regional and national government to ensure they have a role to play in delivering this area of work
  • Learn how we envisage the plan will be monitored and delivered once it is adopted.
