What we want to achieve

Local businesses are an important part of Medway’s journey to net zero carbon and can be leaders in innovating and adopting new practices. We want to help support businesses with their efforts to become more sustainable.

How we will do this

We have set out a range of actions for how Medway can respond to the climate emergency. These range from actions that the council will take to lead by example, to those that will support the community to act.

In our Refreshed Climate Change Action Plan, we highlighted 15 actions that are a priority to support our journey to net-zero. The following action is marked as a priority:
