Climate Change Action Plan

The Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) was approved at Full Council on 29 February 2024. The Action Plan provides a framework for everyone to take action to reduce emissions and adapt to the climate change that is already occurring, driven by the vision, objectives and targets set out in the Council’s Climate Change Strategy.

Climate Change Strategy

The Strategy describes how we will work towards reducing carbon emissions from Council operations to ‘net zero’ by 2030, and work with our local communities and other stakeholders to achieve net zero across the wider borough by 2050, in line with national targets.

The Action Plan identifies over 200 actions and sub-actions which focus on reducing emissions that the Council can directly and indirectly control and influence, and actions which will help reduce borough-wide emissions. It is designed to set us in the right direction, but it will continue to be developed to keep pace with shifts across society, technology and wider policy, including the changing needs of communities, groups and organisations in Runnymede. 

The Action Plan includes a chapter describing how delivery will be monitored, including how progress reports will be presented at Corporate Management Committee.
