How we are tackling climate change in Rushmoor.

Rushmoor Climate Promise

We have a set of ambitious actions to help us tackle the impacts of climate change.

Climate change emergency

In summer 2019, we declared a climate emergency in Rushmoor, with the full support of all councillors.

In doing so, our councillors pledged to make the council carbon neutral, and Aldershot and Farnborough greener and more sustainable.

In November 2019, members of the council's Cabinet approved the council's Climate Change Action Plan 2020-2030.

Climate change action plan

As part of the climate change action plan, we have agreed a set of actions aimed at making the council carbon neutral and Aldershot and Farnborough more sustainable by 2030.

There are more than 90 actions in the plan, which we will be updating every year, among these are details of our plans to:

  • To increase recycling and reduce waste, including by introducing a weekly food waste collection service in 2021/22, ahead of the anticipated national introduction in 2023
  • To look at how we make sure Aldershot and Farnborough town centre regeneration schemes include measures like energy efficient buildings, energy generation, and green transport
  • To involve local people in our efforts, including through things like community gardens and helping people get more involved in their local neighbourhoods
  • To make our own buildings more energy efficient, moving to green energy where possible, and to look at how our staff can work differently to reduce our impact on the environment
