How we're tackling the impacts of climate change.

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

We have a set of ambitious actions to help us tackle the impacts of climate change. Our action plan will be reviewed in view of our carbon footprint report, new government strategies and COP26.

There are more than 90 actions in the current plan, which we will be updating every year, among these are details of our plans 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
  • Look at how we make sure Aldershot and Farnborough town centre regeneration schemes include measures like energy efficient buildings, energy generation, and green transport
  • Involve local people in our efforts, including through things like community gardens and helping people get more involved in their local neighbourhoods
  • 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
