Climate Change Action Plan
Epping Forest District Council declared a climate emergency in September 2019 and made a commitment to do everything within its power to become a carbon neutral District by 2030. To act on this commitment, we have drafted a climate change action plan that was approved at Cabinet meeting on 11 April 2022.
Reaching this challenging target needs help and input from all who live, work and visit the District so we encourage as many people as possible to share their views on the plan.
There are two main areas covered in the plan. The first looks at how the council will reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions in the delivery of council services. The second then looks at ways in which the Council can facilitate and encourage individuals and organisations to help reduce their own greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate Change Action Plan Review and Summary
Following organisational changes and external influences to Council services the Climate Change Action plan has been reviewed.
The review looks at which actions are complete, which are underway and can now be classed as business as usual, and which actions can be removed following investigation. The review also aims to recommend priority actions for the Council where we can take direct action that will bring the greatest emission reductions.
The document also suggests additional monitoring to track progress of the suggested priority actions. The Climate Change Action Plan Summary document has been produced to show the outcomes of this review
