Tackling Climate Change

We want to hear your views on how we should be reducing emissions across three main sectors and building our resilience to climate change:

Transport

A more affordable and accessible public and active transport system can reduce emissions, improve air quality, and improve health and wellbeing.

Waste and consumer habits

Efforts to reduce our waste and its impact need to move beyond recycling to promote circular economy principles; encouraging innovative approaches to reuse.

Housing and

development

Our priority in Surrey is to create low carbon, healthy homes for our residents, that reduces their carbon footprint and also contributes to household savings.

Building

resilience

It is recognised that climate change is already directly impacting upon the lives of our residents today, so we must adapt now.

About the Strategy

In July 2019, Surrey County Council declared a climate change emergency and made a commitment that the County would be net zero carbon by 2050. A focused programme of engagement and co-development has since been undertaken with partners, residents and experts to create the resulting Surrey Climate Change Strategy, which will enable collaborative action on climate change. It is now time to turn this strategy into action.

This site is an opportunity for you, the residents of Surrey, to continue to provide input on suggested programmes and projects. The site will be a place for sharing best practice and advice on measures that can be taken in our daily lives to reduce our carbon footprints, from the way we travel, to the way we heat our homes.
