Royal Borough of Greenwich publishes draft Carbon Neutral Plan ahead of public consultationNovember 17, 2020
The Royal Borough of Greenwich in South-East London has published a draft of its ambitious Carbon Neutral Plan, which sets out the Council’s strategy to respond to the climate crisis. The Carbon Neutral Plan sets out actions the Council will take between 2021 and 2030 to cut green-house gas emissions from all sectors of the economy, including:
- Making council-owned homes, offices and other buildings fossil-fuel free and more energy efficient
- Reducing car use in the borough by 45% by 2030 and transitioning the council’s fleet of vehicles to be 100% zero emissions
Element Energy have assisted the borough in developing and writing their strategy throughout the process. An initial Element Energy Evidence Base report, published in January 2020, used bespoke regional emissions modelling to establish a baseline for emissions and assess the potential impacts of mitigation options to produce a list of high priority actions for immediate consideration. These actions were then refined through cost-benefit analysis, business case development and consultation with council officers and other stakeholders to develop the new strategy.
Feedback from residents and other local stakeholders will be sought in a public consultation opening in December before a final version of the plan is adopted by the Council.
