Make Your Climate Pledge
Our planet is changing. Climate change is having more and more of an impact and there is a growing urgency for everyone to do something about it.
But what can we do in West Sussex?
There are lots of small changes we can all make which not only helps with climate change but also could improve air quality, our health and save us money.
That’s why we’ve launched the West Sussex Climate Pledge.
The pledge focuses on key steps we can all take to limit the impact we are having on the environment and help keep our county protected for generations to come. From June, we will be raising awareness of one of the following pledge themes each month:
- Make Low Carbon Journeys
- Save Water
- Fight Against Food Waste
- Shop Local
- Save Energy
At the county council we’re taking steps to cut our own carbon emissions by making our buildings more energy efficient, and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels by introducing renewable energy with our solar farms.
Last year we achieved a 17 per cent reduction in our carbon emissions - a 45 per cent reduction in carbon emissions from the original baseline set in 2011/12. Over the next four years we are planning a £35m investment in low carbon energy projects alone.
You can find more information about our commitment to Sustainability here.
Everyone has a part to play if we want to protect our planet.
There are over 850,000 people living in West Sussex. If we all work together we can make a huge difference
