They have declared a climate emergency to become net-zero carbon as an organisation by 2025, and by 2030 they are seeking to reduce the total emissions in Stratford-on-Avon District as a whole by at least 55% as a stepping stone to becoming a net zero District.

On their membership with SWM, they say:

“We have adopted a detailed climate change action programme, which sets out the actions we must take to deliver on our climate change ambitions including from the business, housing and transport sectors.

“Our climate change action programme sets out three main climate change ambitions. These are:

Ambition 1 – Net Zero Carbon Council 2025: for Council owned assets and operations to be net zero carbon by 2025, and that services provided through contractors include carbon reduction targets to deliver net zero by 2030.

Ambition 2 – Low Carbon South Warwickshire 2030: to reduce net carbon emissions from across Stratford-on-Avon District by a minimum of 55% by 2030 and alongside this, plan how to further reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

Ambition 3 – Adaptation 2050: by 2050 to enable our environment and communities to have adapted to the potential of at least a 3 degrees rise in global temperatures by 2100.”
