Working Towards a Carbon Neutral Wokingham Borough

In July 2019, Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) members unanimously declared a climate emergency. The declaration commits WBC to do as much as possible to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.

Subsequently, the council published its first Climate Emergency Action Plan.

A dream for a Carbon Neutral Borough

Our dream is for a carbon neutral Wokingham Borough, where our community would breathe clean air and enjoy clean and green bio-diverse spaces. People would walk, wheel, scoot or cycle, use accessible public transport and low-emission vehicles. Homes, businesses, places of work and leisure would be low-carbon and energy efficient, powered by renewables and use innovative technologies that pave the way forward for future generations. Wokingham would be an inclusive and diverse community, where everyone plays their part in contributing towards a low-carbon future.

A dream for a carbon neutral Borough, developed following the “Dream session” of the 2022 “Let’s Talk Climate” community workshop.

This dream cannot be achieved without your help, whether at home, work, or while you travel, small changes can add up to tackle our climate emergency.

The time to act on climate change is now. Even though all of us are such a small part of the change that is needed, if we take action and consciously try to live a lower-carbon lifestyle, we can help to tackle the climate emergency.  Be part of the change towards a carbon neutral future.
