Action plan

Our action plan has 2 main strands:

Reduce carbon emissions that are under the council's control

Influence and lead

community action against climate change

Currently, we have:

  • 42 live projects
  • 5 of these projects reflect emissions that the council has direct control over
  • 18 of these projects reflect emissions that we can influence within the borough
  • 19 of these projects are a combination of direct control and influence

Climate Change Joint Climate Action Board

The Climate Change Joint Action Board unites organisations in Bracknell Forest. They work together on climate action and monitor progress towards Net Zero targets. The work of the board is crucial to our strategic approach to climate change. It will play a central role in developing our Community Climate Emergency Strategy.

The board is chaired by Leader the council, Cllr Mary Temperton and is supported by several working groups from different sectors. Our climate change commitments and cooperation page has more information and explains how you can get involved.
