Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) wants your views on how transport can be decarbonised –
The council, along with all other Gloucestershire authorities, declared a climate emergency in 2019 and the county council adopted a Climate Change Strategy. This strategy saw the council set out the following carbon reduction targets:
- The county council’s own operational emissions to be net zero by 2030
- Emissions from all sources across the county to be net zero by 2050
- The county to work with partners to deliver an 80% reduction in emissions by 2030, relative to 2005.
In 2020, the county council strengthened its targets further, committing to reaching net zero emissions from all sources across the county by 2045.
The council, in partnership with UK100, held the Gloucestershire Decarbonising Transport Forum 2022 – Journey to Net Zero in July 2022. The forum’s aim was to bring together key stakeholders and experts to discuss Gloucestershire’s journey to net zero. Following on from the forum, GCC wants to hear from its residents, businesses, and interested groups, to understand what they think are the best methods for reducing the emissions and tackling the climate emergency.
