Our Green City

Southampton City Council declared a climate emergency in 2019 and published its Green City Charter and Plan, identifying key priorities to create a cleaner, greener, healthier and more sustainable city, including commitments to being a net zero organisation by 2030. This plan set out delivery targets until 2023. The Southampton City Council Corporate Plan 2022-2030 set our ambition to be a zero-carbon city by 2035.

The newly adopted Southampton City Council Climate Change Strategy 2023-2030 reiterates our commitments to our net zero targets and also to becoming a climate change ready city and the accompanying Action Plan sets out how we intend to achieve this.
