Cambridgeshire to hit net zero by 2045

Cambridgeshire to hit net zero by 2045

Cambridgeshire County Council’s climate change plan and aim for net zero has been approved.

This includes a target of the entirety of Cambridgeshire hitting net zero by 2045 and the council specifically reaching this by 2030.

Net zero buildings, an electric fleet of vehicles and work to boost biodiversity are included throughout the plan.

Councillor Lorna Dupré said: “This new strategy and action plan for Cambridgeshire is more ambitious than ever before and is focused on cutting carbon emissions before it’s too late to prevent severe climate impacts.

“It commits us to acting faster to tackle the climate emergency by bringing forward targets for reaching net zero.

“It puts climate change at the heart of the council so it becomes engrained in every department and service that we provide and it sets out how we will support communities and our natural environment to adapt and thrive as the climate changes.”
