What have we done so far?

Our first Environment and Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (EnvPlan) of June 2020 highlighted the steps put in place to help the Council reach its goal of being a ‘carbon net zero’ authority, with a list of 20 commitments: 

The first annual plan led to the Council switching to 100% renewable electricity at its headquarters, adopting a homeworking culture and switching all Council-managed street and car park lights to LED bulbs.

The second annual plan, of June 2021, led to the creation of a new tree maze in Ely Country Park, 20 new orchards across the district and commitment to delivering renewable energy on our own buildings.

Our third annual plan, of June 2022, commits to a further 20 actions we will take for 2022/23. These actions can be found on our What are we going to do? page.
