Responding to the climate emergency
The States Assembly have agreed that a climate emergency exists and is likely to have profound effects in Jersey.
In response to the climate emergency, a Carbon Neutral Strategy was lodged with the States Assembly at the end of 2019. The carbon neutral strategy responds to the requirement from the States Assembly to bring forward a plan to aim to be carbon neutral by 2030. The strategy builds on the progress made through the Pathway 2050: an Energy Plan for Jersey and sets out a strategic framework of principles and a central planning scenario. The carbon neutral strategy will be debated by the States Assembly on 25 February 2020.
In July 2019 the Council of Ministers published an initial report on tackling the climate emergency in Jersey which outlined the case for the direct and indirect benefits of Jersey pursuing a carbon neutral future.
Help Jersey to become carbon neutral by 2030
For Jersey to reach carbon neutrality we all need to work together. We're developing a plan which will outline how we'll aim to be carbon neutral by 2030. We'll be talking to lots of people, businesses and organisations to help us to create this plan.
