Electric parking permits to be introduced

A new parking permit is being introduced to the Road Traffic (St Helier) (Jersey) Order 1996 to enable electric vehicle sharing clubs to have allocated parking spaces on public and parish roads.

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.    

What you can do at home

In the meantime, check out our energy saving advice for simple ways to save energy and reduce your carbon footprint. 

You can also have a Home Energy Audit carried out on your home to tell you how to make your home more energy efficient.   

What you can do at work

Find out how your business can save energy and reduce its carbon footprint and sign up to the eco active business network for more information and support. See the eco active business energy monitoring spreadsheet to identify what energy your business uses and by extension the associated carbon emissions.  
Opportunities to have your say will be coming soon. You can email us to be kept informed about these opportunities. 

We'll also post any updates on social media.
