In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, stated that
“global warming is likely to reach 1.5C (above pre-industrial levels between 2030 and 2052) if it
continues at its current rate”. It also stated, that global warming could be halted should emissions
reach and be sustained at “net zero global CO2 emissions”.
In response, in April 2019 Medway Council declared a climate emergency and committed to:
 reduce its carbon footprint and provide the local community with a clean, green future and
be a place people want to work and live, which has a sustainable future.
 establish a clear action plan for Medway to deal with climate change, setting out an
achievable and clear timeline
Summary
A 5 year action plan will be developed to support Medway’s aspiration to be recognised as a City
of Culture in 2025.
The action plan will focus on:
 Actions to reduce/eliminate the council’s own carbon emissions
 Actions to support others to work towards net zero emissions in Medway
 Actions to promote climate resilience.
