Medway Council declared a climate emergency in April 2019 and passed a motion committing to:

  • reduce its carbon footprint
  • provide the local community with a clean, green future
  • be a place people want to work and live, which has a sustainable future
  • establish a clear action plan for Medway to deal with climate change, setting out an achievable and clear timeline.

Our declaration fits into our Council Plan priority of making Medway a place to be proud of. The main outcome being a 'clean and green environment'.

Medway action plan

We're committed to making Medway carbon neutral by 2050. We have developed an action plan to ensure we play our part in addressing the climate emergency.

Our Climate Change Action Plan covers 11 high-level priority areas and the actions we have committed to.

The action plan will be reviewed and updated annually, to make sure we are responding to the latest knowledge and opportunities. We're committed to keeping all updated of our progress. We have created a simplified action plan to increase accessibility.
