The scale of the challenge 

We cannot achieve our climate ambition alone. Only about 2% of the borough's emissions are in our direct control. For the rest, we are reliant on the choices and actions of individuals, organisations, and businesses. Among other things, we need people to buy and sell sustainable goods and services, to create less waste, to switch to low carbon energy, and to stop using petrol and diesel vehicles by moving towards sustainable modes of transport.
