Climate Change Basildon 2030
Climate Change Basildon 2030 is all about the small changes each of us can make, that when added together have a big impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the borough.
Small changes, big impact
The climate change emergency is fast becoming the biggest threat facing the nation and action is needed without delay, both nationally and at a local level within our borough.
Basildon Council is now fully committed to developing an ongoing programme of greenhouse gas reduction measures, with an ambitious target to deliver zero carbon emissions across the borough by 2030, and net zero emissions by 2050.
Public Consultation: separate food and garden waste collections
As part of our ambition to become a carbon net-zero borough by 2050, a public consultation is now underway to consider proposals for separate kerbside food and garden waste collections. We invite all borough residents to have their say on the new proposals. For details and to complete the online survey see: www.basildon.gov.uk/fgconsult.
To achieve our zero carbon emissions target we need your help and support. Further information on what we are doing and guidance on how you can help is available under the following headings:
