Kingston's Climate Action Plan

Kingston’s Climate Action Plan was approved at Place Committee on 10 March 2022.

The plan aims to reduce emissions, protect and enhance nature and prepare the borough for the unavoidable impacts of climate change, while also bringing other benefits such as safer streets, warmer homes, new jobs and improved air quality. The plan has been shaped by community and expert feedback, following the Kingston Climate Conversation in 2021.

With investment already made to reduce emissions from its vehicles, buildings and street lighting, the council aims to be carbon neutral in its operations by 2030, while helping the the wider borough to carbon neutrality by 2038.

To help achieve this, the council will maintain a focus on attracting green funding and grants to Kingston, to ensure the borough is able to take the action that’s needed.
