Climate change - tackling it and our strategy

Developing a new plan

We are aware that we need to do more to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment, which is why we will putting together a plan ready to roll out in 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.

The first step in the process, the external Baseline Review - Sustainability, is now complete. This helps us to understand our progress to date and highlights the progress made alongside what worked well and what further opportunities for action exist.

This will inform and shape the production of the plan with the focus now on further exploring and defining the opportunities and possible action areas. These will be costed and evaluated to produce a programme of projects.
