Net zero

Our vision is to achieve net zero carbon emissions of carbon dioxide in the Reading area by 2030.

This target is based on the sound science outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, recognising the need for more ambitious and urgent action to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. This recognition manifested itself in the declaration of a climate emergency by Reading Borough Council, on behalf of the wider community, in February 2019.
