Green actions for change

Working together, residents and businesses have helped us to make Camden a more sustainable and ‘green’ borough.

Key successes include cutting carbon dioxide emissions per person by 15.7% since 2005, starting work on Camden’s latest low carbon energy network serving over 330 homes in Somers Town, and delivering external wall insulation to over 120 council homes to help cut energy use and reduce fuel bills for residents.

Further achievements are set out in our fourth annual review of Green Action for Change (GAfC), Camden’s environmental sustainability plan (2011-2020). The review provides a summary of progress against our 2014-16 action plan and Green Action for Change’s long term goal of creating a low carbon and low waste borough.

We're keen to hear your thoughts on this fourth annual review. Let us know what you think, including any ideas you have for how we can all do more in these financially difficult times, here until 13 March 2016.

This year we’ll continue to focus on areas such as reducing Camden’s household waste, increasing the energy efficiency of council homes, improving air quality and making Camden the best borough in London for cyclists and pedestrians.

Looking ahead, we will be refreshing our actions for 2016-18 as part of our fifth review due in the second half of 2016.
