Our commitment to help Worcester become carbon neutral by 2030

Worcester City Council declared a climate emergency in July 2019 and committed itself to take action to help the city become carbon neutral by 2030. The authority has created a strategy setting out policies to achieve this:

  • Making the work of Worcester City Council carbon neutral
  • Developing the city's low carbon economy and ensuring sustainability becomes embedded in the practices of businesses
  • Protecting Worcester's natural environment and enhancing its biodiversity
  • Ensuring the city is prepared for and able to cope with the effects and impacts of the changing climate
  • Reducing Worcester's consumption of resources.

The strategy has been drawn up with input from Conservative, Labour and Green members of the Council, along with local stakeholders.
