Sustainable environment

When we talk about ‘climate change’, ‘net zero’, ‘carbon’, ‘global warming’ and ‘sustainability’ we are saying that a sustainable climate matters.

Sustainable development means not taking so much from our environment that future generations are negatively affected by our choices.

Society is growing in an unsustainable way. In the UK we live as if there were 2.4 planets of resources available. There is only one Earth, and we have to change our ways.

We all need to play our part, as the government is committed to reaching net zero to combat climate change. We must change our lifestyles to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions to stop the changes getting worse. These days many of us as residents and employees are doing more, and we have a part to play too.
