Eastleigh Borough Council approved a strategy and action plan to tackle climate change following its previous decision to declare a Climate Change and Environmental Emergency.

The Council has now published a new strategy and action plan detailing how the Council will continue to tackle the Climate and Environmental Emergency and recognises the urgency of action to mitigate and adapt to climate change in every decision taken by the Council.

The Council will be putting measures in place for its own operations and functions to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025 and will work with communities and businesses across the Borough to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
