Islington Council is asking local people and organisations to give their views on its strategies to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies.
The council is determined to press ahead with its commitment to tackling the climate and ecological emergencies while also ensuring the response to the current public health emergency is managed effectively. Originally, a series of workshops and public meetings were planned to engage with local residents as part of the consultation, but following the serious escalation of the Covid-19 crisis, these plans have been revised. As a result, we are consulting online only and will keep the consultation open until further notice. Once the Covid 19 public health emergency becomes clearer, we will reassess what steps we can take to help residents engage further and to set an end date for the consultation.
Islington Council has declared a climate and ecological emergency and has pledged to achieve a net zero carbon borough by 2030. We are committed to making Islington a fairer place for everyone by reducing inequalities in society which are made worse by climate change.
Our draft plan ‘Vision 2030: Building a Net Zero Carbon Islington by 2030’ sets out what we will do to achieve the 2030 target. Although we have a leading role in reducing carbon emissions, we must work closely with residents, businesses and community groups to achieve our goal.
That’s why we want to hear from as many people and organisations as possible for their ideas on how we can achieve Vision 2030.
Please read the Vision 2030 document and let us know what you think.
We are also consulting on a new Biodiversity Action Plan to address the ecological emergency and we would also like to hear from people and organisations on this document. To comment on the Biodiversity Action Plan please see our consultation page.
Please complete our online survey.
