We have agreed two motions to declare a climate change emergency in the borough.
We have committed to becoming a council that takes robust action to tackle the local and global threat of climate change, both internally and in partnership with local organisations and residents, and to minimise its environmental impact by cutting carbon, waste and pollution.
On 9 July 2019, we agreed two motions to declare a climate emergency.
"Council joins the rapidly growing number of councils that have declared a 'Climate Change Emergency'. It rejects the idea that this declaration is a symbolic gesture and will give substance to its commitment.
Council therefore resolves to become recognised as the Greenest London Borough. It will undertake the factual analysis, target setting, and produce the strategy and action plans necessary by January 2020, in order to realise this goal and become carbon neutral by 2030."
