Climate change - tackling it and our strategy

Tackling climate change

In July 2019 the council unanimously supported a proposal to prioritise responding to climate change.

As a council, we recognise that we can, and want, to do a lot more to reduce our carbon footprint, and we want to encourage others to do so too.

We are now working on producing a deliverable plan, ready for roll out during 2020. In that plan, we aim to lead by example in our everyday practices, encouraging and supporting our residents and businesses to do likewise. We’ll also be looking to invest in programmes that support a carbon neutral Central Bedfordshire for 2030 and beyond.
