Camden Council has given the go-ahead to an ambitious five-year climate action plan.

Highlights of the plan include increasing the number of cycle routes and car-free zones, making all new homes zero-carbon, retrofitting old buildings and switching the council’s energy supplies to 100% renewable sources.

Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for a Sustainable Camden, said: “The climate emergency is the most serious threat that our planet, its people and all forms of life all face.

Carbon dioxide emissions in Camden have fallen 38% during the last 10 years but we know we need go further and more urgently.”

Last year the council declared a climate emergency and committed to making Camden a zero-carbon borough by 2030.
