Our Environment Strategy Draft Delivery Plan

Strategic Objectives - Environment Strategy

Our draft Delivery Plan guides the delivery of our published Environment Strategy 2020-2030


It lays out a framework of actions that will set us on the path to reach carbon neutrality for the district by 2030 and picks up on the statements of intent made in the Strategy. Whilst many actions will help to deliver a number of the Strategy's strategic objectives (seen in the arrow image to the right), the draft Delivery Plan is organised according to the strategic objective that actions most closely relate.  

The work to deliver the Strategy will evolve as we develop partnerships and new opportunities arise. This draft Delivery Plan will act as a basis for us to work from. With this in mind, the plan will remain 'live' and be continuously developing between now and 2030.

We aim to report our progress every year so we can calculate our emissions savings. Our first report will be published later this year on our website.

We have highlighted our key actions in the pdf icon Summarised draft Delivery Plan [9Mb].

Thank you to those who filled out our survey. We are currently analysing the results to help us improve our Delivery Plan. A full response will be considered by the Executive at their meeting on 15 July, which you can live stream from our YouTube page.

A number of our actions within the Draft Delivery Plan contribute to delivering the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. This set of ambitious international goals outline criteria for reaching a sustainable future. Our Draft Delivery Plan helps to achieve these, for example by demonstrating our commitment to renewable energy, supporting community climate action, and protecting our natural environment.
