Results updated 23 Dec 2021



We would like to hear your views on the draft 2030 Climate Strategy for Edinburgh. The draft strategy outlines how we will work with citizens, communities and public, private and third sector organisations across the city to deliver a net zero, climate ready Capital by 2030.

An executive summary of the strategy and a full copy can be found in the 'Related' section below. 

More Information

Net zero is when any greenhouse gas emissions put into the atmosphere are balanced out by the greenhouse gases removed from the atmosphere, so that the 'net' effect is zero emissions.
Edinburgh has committed to 'net zero' by 2030. To achieve this, we must reduce the emissions we generate close to zero, and by 2030, make sure that we remove the same amount of greenhouse gases as we as a city, put into the air.
