Bromley Council has set the ambitious aim of achieving net zero by 2027.
The announcement follows the council’s statement that it reduced its emissions by 39.5% in 2021, achieved through purchasing 100% renewable energy, a £1.35 million tree-planting scheme and the installation of LED lighting.
It has set plans to install electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure throughout Bromley and improve accessibility to cycling and walkways for pedestrians.
Councillor William Harmer said: “We have been developing successful and more demanding carbon management programmes for a number of years now and this builds on that work.
“We will also look to continue to work with and help residents so that they can also play their part as indeed many residents are already doing. It is this spirit of mutual partnership and challenge that has already helped deliver outstanding results and now we are going further.”
