About Zero Carbon Eden

On 11 July 2019, we declared both a climate emergency and an ecological emergency. We are joined by over 230 local authorities across the country in declaring these emergencies. Alongside other local authorities in Cumbria, we commit to act sustainably. This means working to maintain a healthy, clean and green environment now and in future generations.

Zero Carbon Eden Aims

We aim to:

  1. Make the Council’s operations zero carbon by 2030.
  2. Encourage initiatives which help Eden District become net zero carbon.
  3. Improve biodiversity in Eden through projects and partnerships.
  4. Preserve our working cultural landscapes and economies.

Next steps to achieve our targets

We are currently creating a Sustainability Action Plan. This will focus on our personal carbon footprint and ecological impact. As well as working alongside partners, residents and businesses to achieve sustainability targets.
