Zero Carbon by 2030
We the undersigned petition the council to To agree a target date of 2030 for achieving ‘net carbon zero’ emissions from the councils activities, and to design an action plan in accordance with this target. We welcome the council's declaration of a climate emergency and commitment to work towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions for the council's activities and for the county. But time is short.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report a
year ago was clear that urgent action is essential if we are to
limit global temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees C.
This is a huge challenge and achieving net zero carbon for the council is much more likely to be achieved if a target is set. 2030 is the date for which we should aim.
