Who we are
What is 'Net Zero'
‘Net zero’ refers to achieving an overall balance between our addition of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and their absorption by the natural environmental, such as woodland. This means we must significantly reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants arising from transport, home energy, food consumption and waste. It also means nurturing our local environment in terms of natural carbon capture and protecting and enhancing natural habitats, for the benefit of people and for wildlife alike.
Our vision is to end our contributions to the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss by 2035. We recognise that our vision can only be attained by taking practical action at community level, and by engaging and informing our community about the impacts and choices that, collectively, make the most difference.
