Reading Climate Emergency Strategy Consultation

Closes 24 Apr 2020

Vision and target

Our vision

Our vision for 2025 is for a Reading which is working rapidly towards:                                                                                  

  • net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and             
  • being resilient to the impacts of a changing climate

Our target

Our target is to achieve a net zero carbon Reading by 2030. Progress towards net zero will vary from year to year so rather than setting annual targets for each year to 2030, we will use the average annual reduction in emissions which will be necessary to get there as a benchmark against which to judge progress.

Further detail on the net zero target is included in section 3.2 of the draft Strategy.

1. The statements above outline the vision and target for the Reading Climate Emergency Strategy. Do you have any suggestions for improving these?
