In Britain, around 93 per cent of the population lives in areas where the local authorities - over 525 councils all together - have declared a climate emergency (as of March 2022). Eden District Council declared both a climate emergency and an ecological emergency on 11 July 2019. Alongside other local authorities in Cumbria, we are committed to acting sustainably - working to maintain a healthy, clean and green environment now and for future generations.
Zero Carbon Eden Aims
We aim to:
- Make the Council’s operations zero carbon by 2030.
- Encourage initiatives which help Eden district become net zero carbon.
- Improve biodiversity in Eden through projects and partnerships.
- Preserve our working cultural landscapes and economies.
Zero Carbon Eden Strategy
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. We will also be working alongside partners, residents and businesses to achieve our sustainability targets.
