Cornwall has set an ambitious target of becoming carbon neutral by 2030

Aiming for 2030, ahead of the Government's target of 2050, gives us the best chance of keeping global warning below 1.5 degrees Celsius. Which scientists tell us will avoid the worst impacts on our planet.

Becoming carbon neutral can be achieved in two ways, by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases we are producing, and by capturing the carbon dioxide we do produce so that it can't enter the atmosphere.

This challenge can give us hope, not just that we can find our way through an emergency, but that we can rise to the challenge and come out the other side even better than before.

We’re not starting from scratch, there are pioneers in Cornwall, demonstrating how we can change the ways we live, work and play. But there is always room for new ideas.

Cornwall Council is working towards becoming a Carbon Neutral Council; and Cornwall's response to Climate Change needs everyone to think and act differently. We need to change our options and our decisions.

The Carbon Neutral Cornwall Call to Action explains our vision for how Cornwall can become carbon neutral. We have made a good start and now we need everyone to get involved.

We want everyone to shape Cornwall's vision for reaching carbon neutrality.

Together we can

If we all make small changes to how we move, shop, eat, think and live, together we can make practical changes on a huge scale.

Please take a look at the Carbon Neutral Cornwall Call to Action and get involved in the conversations below that are going to shape Cornwall's Carbon Neutral 'greenprint' Plan and put it into action.
