Brent Climate and Ecological Emergency Strategy 2021-2030

In July 2019, Full Council declared a climate and ecological emergency and committed to an overarching aim to ‘do all reasonable in the council’s gift to aim for carbon neutrality by 2030’. 

As well as reducing the risks from global heating, action to tackle the climate and ecological emergency has the potential to bring positive change for Brent’s local community on many of the issues that matter most to people, such as cleaner air, greener spaces, warmer homes, healthier travel and a thriving local economy.

The council and all of its residents and communities will need to work together to meet this challenge and to secure the potential benefits for positive social, economic and environmental transformation through a transition to a net zero carbon economy, a cleaner and greener environment, and a fairer and healthier society.

Brent’s Climate & Ecological Emergency Strategy is the culmination of a year of research, review, and engagement with our communities and colleagues. It sets out our proposed priorities and a pathway to carbon zero.
